I must have had too much coffee today because while trying to remove the ram cover to add more ram, I stripped the screw. How do I remove the cover now? Any help is greatly appreciated!!

You might try a better screwdriver, not all are the same and with enough pressure and a good screw driver you can often get the screw out.

You can also try cutting a slot in the screw and using a blade screwdriver to get it out.

Another option is to cut the head off and hope there is enough of the screw to use plyers to get it out (I would not count on this).
