is there a way to get these types of screws out?

Banned

put a screw driver under the screw head, jimmy it up a bit then unscrew it gently. Should be able to do it with your nails though, unless you've cut/bit them too short.

dab a dot of superglue on the screwdriver and let it set in the screw leave for an hour then pull slightley whilst unscrewing

I think u'll find that a magnet will wipe it, 'HDDs record data by magnetizing ferromagnetic material directionally, to represent either a 0 or a 1 binary digit. They read the data back by detecting the magnetization of the material'

what exactly does "i think its been thread in" mean??
