I'm trying to fix my phone. How do I deal with a very tiny, hard to get at screw with a stripped head?

I'm trying to replace the glass touch screen on an LG Shine Touch using these instructions
. The heads on two of the screws - one under and one beside the battery - are stripped and I can't get a purchase on them at all. I'm using the magnetic screwdriver I got with the new screen.
I have absolutely no experience with this. I've tried small amounts of sticky tack and rubber cement, but it didn't help. Should buy a slightly larger screw driver? Resort to superglue? Let me know your tips and tricks!
