Hey so im having problems unscrewing the bolts that hold the cooler to the motherboard.  Flipped the motherboard over and attempted to unscrew the bolts that hold the cooler in place but the screws that the bolts are attached to are just spinning so nothing is getting unscrewed. I tried using my finger, and pliers to stop the rotation but that didn't work.  Why are the screws so rounded and ungrabbable?  Did they think no one would ever remove the cooler?  Am I doing something wrong?  Any help at all would be awesome.
