    Hi - followed all the steps to remove keyboard, casing everything....stuck at the last screw (near the mini-PCI)....that screw is jammed and I tried a few times and now the screw seems to be stripped :eek: What should I do? tried various options of unscrewing it - but stuck at the very last stage. I was trying to upgrade the RAM :(

    Can anyone help or offer suggestions???

    Well, if you have f*'ed up the screw completely, there's not much more to do than to drill the screw out....

    edit: and one thing you can try, is to glue some kind of a lever to the screw with a VERY powerful glue and then you might be able to get it open.
