Default screws

please delete you guys were to slow already solved the problem

problem: first what type of screw use a 6 pointed star instead of a cross or flat head?
answer: torx

Problem: how would I be able to undo it without owning a torx screwdriver
answer: a lot of people on other forums told me I couldn't but I am going to try anyway its just that I can't find a flat-head screwdriver small enough

or you can use an allen wrench but it has to be exactly the right size to fit the torx.
your flat head screwdriver idea is the best, tho. get a precision/jewelers screwdrivers set and it will have one that will work. if they are not too tight that is...otherwise you will just break your screwdriver.
