Question Detatched charge port! help!

My 3DS is in trouble!
I tripped over the wire and it ripped out the charge cord, which removed the port bits from the motherboard. I can fix this easily, but 4/8 of the screws I need to remove just won't budge. I'm sure some of them might be stripped, but I just don't know what to do. I can't afford to buy a new one, and I really want to play Pokemon Y over again. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Oh Jesus. That sounds horrible. If you haven't already, try out the rubberband method. Put a rubberband over the screw and use a screwdriver head one size bigger than the one that stripped your screws. Then apply hard, but slow force as you turn the screwdriver. Hope this works out for you, man.
