    I heard a little bit of glue on the tip of screw driver works. Double stick tape may even work.

    Use a little bit of really strong super glue at the tip of the screwdriver and hold it in place on the screw until the glue dries. Assuming the screw isn't it impossibly tight, you might be able to turn the screwdriver carefully and get the screw loose.

    Think I've seen somebody around here say he did that before.

    Edit: Fine, beat me to it Mikey. It's all good.

    A rubber band on top of the striped screw and place driver on it also works besides the super glue trick. You just need one little turn to loosen it up to remove it.
    I use Gorilla glue, and it always works.

    Oooh neat, rubber band! I'll have to try that some time when I need to.

    Yeah no. I was lying. It was grueling work standing in the blazing sun for 10 hours a day 4 days straight. Then going back into the stupid dorms and having curfews.

    What instrument do you play? And, do you still play after they traumatized and abused you?
