How do I remove a headless screw in a gpu


Ok, so I was trying to take off the heat sink of my stock GTX 1070 FE, and I first took off the back plate, all goes well, fast foward to putting it back on, I was putting in a screw and over torqued it so it lost it's screw head and I don't know how to get out the post of the screw. I lost the head of the screw and I am away from the card right now so I can't get pictures. Thanks for help in advance!
