How to Remove Dusty Screws From a Notebook – If you opened your computer notebook several times, you may have removed the inside of the Phillips screws that hold the computer case together. This makes it difficult for you to use a standard Phillips screwdriver to open the computer case back. Due to the small size of the screws, you can not stick them to extract the screws, so you will need to use a straight screwdriver to remove the stripped screws from your notebook computer.
