Microsoft Windows 11

Hi! I am trying to install a nvidea 3070 gigabyte OC gaming 8G in a omen 25L and a new power supply.  i alredy removed the old graphics card and the old power supply. When i was installing the new graphic i ran into a problem, it didnt fit. There was a plastic graphic card support in tue way (the first image), i tried everything to remove it and the 2 six-hung screws wouldnt come off i tried loads of diferent types of screwdrivers (im not a native english speaker, this might not be the correct word). Should i try to remove it without unscrewing the screws with force carefully? Or try to buy a new case? My friend told me that if i bought a new case it probably wouldnt be compatible with it because hp has its own type of cable the motherboard.

No, mine has only one screw at the front and 2 six hung screws at the back. Thanks for replying!

The ones at the back look like torx screws which is why a phillips wont work.
