What screwdriver do I need to take off the lower (bottom) case of a

I want to remove the lower case of a new series Lenovo laptop (IdeaPad S340 series)

The screw sizes in use are M2.0 and M3.0, but they are NOT Phillips drive type of screws. I have a precision screwdriver kit, but not with the needed head patters. The screws are very small, and I don’t want to round them.

They are 6-star designed, are these Torx screws?

Those are Torx T6 screws. I recently took apart my Ideapad C340-14API and it has the same set of screws.

T6 are too big, T5 are the ones that actually fit from personal experience.


I bought a T6 screwdriver and it doesn't fit the screws on the IdeaPad S340, T5 does though.

Are you able to take a photo of the screws I’ll be able to tell which one once I have an image of them.

T5 Torx screwdriver actually fits the screws on my IdeaPad S340, T6 is too large. Save yourself the hassle and money and get the T5. I bought T6 because that's the answer here, but it turns out, the T6 is too large and doesn't fit.
