Unhappy ram upgrade hardware problem - 09-18-2010, 10:21 AM

Tried to upgrade Ram to 2gb. Alas, impossible to unscrew the screw that locks the Wifi device. It sticks to the card (too much loctite i suppose), and now the screw is f*****d.
Ironically, all the other screws were undone easily, but now I'm stuck with this one. Any ideas?

Standard advice is to use a Dremel or similar tool to carefully cut a slot in the screw head and then use a flat-blade screwdriver to remove. Mini 9 users upgrading the SSD have this problem a lot.
