Anyone have suggestions on getting (fairly deeply-inset) stripped screws out of the back of my laptop that don’t involve a soldering iron?

There is no way i can safely use a soldering iron in the vicinity of my laptop. My ordinary levels of hand-shakiness quadruple just thinking about it.

One of those screwdrivers with the detachable bits, a sacrificial bit or five, superglue, and pray that it doesn't adhere to the laptop as well? :/

I think there's a tool for removing stripped screws.
