Do you have camera you could take some photos with?

Melted pen maybe?

Do you have something like a Dremel tool with a carbide cutting wheel? If so, you can use it to make a flathead screwdriver slot in the screw heads.

If that's not an option, get a decent metal cutting drill bit and drill the heads off. Then you can use another bit slightly larger than the shaft of the screws to drill the rest out.

Don't edit away your posts when your questions get answered, then they can't help anyone else. Then we might as well be in a chatroom.

I took a small drill bit, and drilled the head off. Then I left the screw shanks in for support. I will take them out and replace them eventually, but I don't know where to buy small screws like that.
