[GL553VD] Bottom cover screws/Hinge issues

Level 7
Hi guys,

I've been having some issues with the hinges on my GL553VD laptop and I've had to remove the bottom cover a few times but on my latest attempt I have found that one of the screws goes in but stops about halfway through. When I try to screw it past that point it just turns endlessly.
My questions are: did that happen to anyone else? Were you able to fix the issue? Where can I find replacement screws?
I've been Googling them for the better part of the day but to no avail. Are there any other laptop models that share the size? Also, I couldn't find the actual screw size anywhere.

PS: Has anyone had issues with their hinges? Mine seem to be way too tight, the plastic around the keyboard is bending every time I raise the lid. Either that or they have tightened themselves in time. The build quality is at least mediocre.

Thank you in advance for your help! 😄
