  1. Have a duff internal wireless card, and need to replace same. Stuffed because Toshiba use some weird kind of screwdriver on the coverplate screw. Looks like a cross between an allen key and a posidrive. Anyone know what it is and what name it goes by so I can order one?

    Sounds like a "Torx" screw. Like a star with 6 rounded points. If not a photo may help.

    it may require a security driver tool. screw driver looks like a torx but with hole drilled in the center, standard torx will not go down into the screw head.
