Acer Aspire 3 A315-53 P4MY laptop M.2 SSD install

I have Acer Aspire 3 A315-53 P4MY laptop, and wanted to install M.2 SSD Sata in it. Opened the back cover fully, but could not unscrew the M.2 screw. It is marked with a thin red line on upper side, unlike all other screws. Does it mean something? Tried all types of screw drivers, now the head is getting stripped a little. How to open it?

    Good afternoon GoGreenFan !

    Is the screw-in plug head dusted?
    If so, there is a method I use for many years.
    Get a balloon (yes, an ordinary party balloon).
    Cut a small bent circular part that fits the screw leaving a little to the sides.
    Secure the wrench over to fit the screw.
    Just try to remove normally.
    The synthetic elasticity of the plastic will help remove the screw.

    É uma opção, mas não exatamente recomendada nem viável.
    O alicate pode simplesmente destruir os encaixes da cabeça do parafuso, tornando outros métodos ineficazes e deixando a situação mais complicada.

    No futuro, tente postar nos fóruns na linguagem nativa, que nesse caso é Português e não Ingles.

    It is an option, but not exactly recommended or feasible.
    The pliers can simply destroy the bolt head fittings, rendering other methods ineffective and making the situation more complicated.

    In the future, try posting to the forums in native language, which in this case is Portuguese and not English.
