OK I was trying to open my Wii (getting ready to mod it.) As I continued to pull of the rubber tabs to get to the deep screws I encountered a problem. The screws didn't seem to want to come off put I kept trying anyway and now, I have two stripped screws. Is there anyway to remove a stripped triwing or am I out of hope?

Just wondering, but were u using a triwing screwdriver or something else?

I don't have any experience removing stripped screws, but hope that helps!

If a screw extractor doesn't work, you'll have to drill it out and replace it with a new, slightly bigger screw. The wikihow link quadomatic posted is good.

Alternatively, you could just return it to wal-mart and say it doesn't work and get a new one and try again.

Either way, make sure you use the right screwdriver from now on!
