    OK I have been trying at least 10 times. You know the small black 2 screws on the Wii. The black screws that hold the disk insert part together with the Wii. Those screws simply won't come out. I have a tri wing screw and it extracted all other tri wing screws perfectly, but these black screws just won't budge. I have tried to turn left but it won't move, turning right is possible so I'm assuming it is movable. It isn't strip yet as I didn't kill my screw just yet. I have applied alot of force as well, but still no result. Can anyone help me out.

    There is a combination of screws. Not all of the screws are Tri-Wing. Some are Phillips and need a Phillips screwdriver.

    The black screws are, imho, the hardest to get out because of their size.

    Make sure you're using the right size phillips screwdriver (very small).

    lol i forgot to mention the screw was a tri wing screw, and it isn't the normal + screw. But i got it out anyways at a local repair shop. They extracted it for me and gave me new screws for replacement :]

    I have the same problem. The little black triwing screws on the side next to the disk slot, not the one with the nintendo and ati logogs. they just won't come out, no matter how much i try. I've been using this screw: DealExtreme Trigram

    Any idea what I can do? Do I need another screw driver, and would it need to be bigger or smaller?
