How to remove completely stripped screw?

So I stripped the screw to the point where it’s just a round hole. I tried superglue and it didn’t work, so the hole is caked with the stuff as well. How can I remove this screw? I presume I would need a drill, but what kind of drill might work for the controller?

If it’s in a hole carefully drilling the screw head then removing what’s left with pliers is probably you best option

It it wasn’t in a hole you might be able to cut a slot into it for a flat head screw driver to go in into but this is probably not the best option for you

You could also try using a rubber band on the end of you screw driver

Hopefully this helps

Any questions please ask

C K, this is only to complete the excellent answer by @hellomacos; You could try these precision screw extractors.

I’ve had good success using those, in many cases.
