I can’t unscrew my motherboard

I cannot unscrew my motherboard from the case, I can’t use a pair of pliers on the screw driver of the problematic screw since it’s pretty much out of reach, what do I do ?

My suggestion will piss people off, but drill out the screw.

Pick a bit smaller than the screw hole, drill down the middle, then blast with coimpressed air or clean with isoproypl alcahol

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

I often use a drill to remove screws on old appliances. However I think there is enough head left on the screw that you may be able to remove the screw with an appropriately sized flat head driver. Push down hard and get a good grip on what remains of the screw.

yeah, you can, so don't.

Motherboard manufacturers usually dotn put traces near a screw hole, ive widended motherboard holes before with a drill, it still works. 

Just make sure its streaght down and smaller than the screw size

it would be easiest to line it up from there. Plus, you wont need to go through a standoff.

just go untill you see gold at the end

or, you might just try putting the drill into losen mode first, the bit might bite into the head ant take out the screw

I feel like there might be a misunderstanding here.

 

"Drill it out" does not mean use a drill to unscrew it. It means use a drill to destroy the screw so it can be removed. 

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

You also could try putting a rubber band between the screw head and the screw driver.. Push hard and the elastic will take up some of the opening in the head.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
