    OH man.. that's sucks..
    Are you trying to open the case or close it?
    I would try using a bit bigger screw driver.. With a drill at slow speed..
    Then hopefully the stripped screw would come out.. "just an idea"

    If you don't mind me asking, if you were about to install your modchip, then why were your screws stripped?

    lol, i have the d2pro modchip which killed my dvd drive. tyring to figure out why the dvd/games werent loading i installed and unistalled the modchip a few times. its a modchip issue so i uninstalled it until i found out how to fix the modchip to work with my dvd player. during the install and unistall i stripped one of the screws inside by the dvd player. I found out i need to solder a point on the chip and it should be fine. I have to reinstall it and see if my fix worked...problem is i stripped the screw and cant get back in without doing more damage
