Ways to remove a stripped screw: Create a notch which you can fit a cross-cut screwdriver into using a metal file. This only works if the screw head protrudes enough to get the file into it. Drill out the head of the screw, remove the part it was holding in, and use the new angle to try and remove it. Carefully fix a rod to the screw itself (using glue) so that when you turn the rod the screw turns with it. (This runs the risk of gluing the screw in permanently unless you're good at precision).
