    If there's a star-shaped hole in the screw, that's a Torx screwdriver you need. I'm not sure what size, but they're usually sold as a set anyhow.

    In a pinch, Torx screws can sometimes be removed with the right size hex key.

    I believe it is the smallest Torx driver available. It like 00 or something like that.

    It's a Torx T6.

    Phillips 00 is used to remove the bottom panel.
