There are a few tricks you could try:

  • First of all, get some good drivers, this is usually caused by poor drivers...or really cheap screws in a cheap aftermarket screen
  • Some people use a small rubber band between the screw and the driver, might give it some extra grip.
  • Some people like to super glue the driver to the screw
  • You could use a screw extractor like this
  • Use a dremel to create a "slot"
