Screw that keeps spinning

Hi there,

With black friday i bought a new SSD for my laptop, i'm not really a pro or anything but just removing the back and place the new SSD shouldn't be a problem, but ofcourse there was...

After removing all the screws there were 2 that just stayed there, it just kept spinning. The tips on Google didn't really help and it surely didn't help that the screw was in a tiny hole.

It's a HP 17ak026nb. and this is a picture if interested
