My suggestion is put the driver and bit into the pivot screw and semi-lightly tap it with a hammer a few times. That has worked for me. Having a large bit driver also helps since you have more torque. As mentioned above, a good torx bit set is necessary. The cheap Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot bit kits won't cut it. You'll either strip the screw or the bit itself. I learned this the hard way.
Edit: I use Wiha bits and drivers. Never had one strip or break. They're the best IMO.
