Hey, I think almost all households have got umbraco keys.
You can use them, they work just fine.

I don't remember wich size,though.
Just try until you find the right one.

Sears sells Torx screwdriver sets fairly cheap too. Auto parts stores sell bit sets...

LMFAO!!! Ok...I went into a misc. electronics stire I will call...."Videohut".....well I ask the dude for Torx, he thinks I meant Torque...calls 3 stores asking for TORQUE screwdrivers while I say "T-O-R-X, TORX not Torque!!"......So then he finally understands and goes in back saying he has got some....He brings out a Phillips Screwdriver Set, saying they will work with EVERYTHING NO MATTER WHAT!!! I was about to crack up but somehow stopped my self.....

LOL, thats great, kinda like the guy at best buy that swore DDR RAM would work fine on my computer (it needs SDRAM) but i didnt need to upgrade since 64MB was more than enough for anything i would ever need to do, lol

I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a cheapo 36 piece tool set that included the torx I needed for like $5.66. Just check around places like that. Target, Sears, Radio Shack, any place that sells tools. They don't have to be quality.
