Trying to fit some shelves in a cupboard. For so the screws will not hold. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Don't use a power tool. Power tools will strip the screws in their holes, if you aren't careful. If that still doesn't work, then use little L-brackets...same carefulness. You only want to screw the screw until it's tight, anything beyond tight is breaking the threads the screw just made in the cupboard's material. If the screw just spins, you screwed too far.
