Asus G75VX - Strange gold bolts

I'm attempting to replace the GPU fan as it sounds like the bearing is bad. In all the teardown videos I have watched, I have not seen this bolt in any of them. This is bolted where the monitor meets the base of the laptop. The screws on the left side also seem to be stripped.

Any advice or direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Those gold bolts are torn from the hinge cover assembly. The two screws on the bottom of the laptop that use those bolts should have been removed first.

That makes sense! For whatever reason, those screws seem to not want to come out either. I'm wondering if an electric screwdriver would be able to pull them out or if I will need something else. Thanks for help!
