    If the heads are rounded off then take a hammer and at the same time you're trying to turn the screw tap the screw driver with the hammer. This forces the screw driver to stay in the screw head.

    Use the correct screwdriver but dip the tip in superglue(just a little bit) also try the same method but put literally the most smallest amount of baking soda powder in on top of the screws before you put the screwdriver in so that it will bond the superglue better to the screw head

    If not just gotta use a small drill piece for like 3 seconds and take the heads off

    Once you have rounded off the heads with the wrong screwdriver you have messed up. If you can find one that fits better you might still have a chance. Otherwise you are going to have to remove the heads of the screws somehow or cut a slot in them to get a better grip. Drilling the heads off would work if you are more careful than you have been so far.
