My Presario is having issue with not booting.  From what I have read in this and other forums it is an issue with overheating causing the cpu to disconnect slightly.  I want to have a look and do not want to pay the minimum $130.00 fee.  I need 2 items.
1.  Instructions for taking it apart.
2.  Where do I get the tiny star shaped screwdriver.  Allen wrench won't work.  The ones in the computer store kits do not fit. It needs to be smaller maybe.

    2. You can get torx screwdriver sets at Home Depot's online site.  Theses are small, six-pointed star-shaped screwdrivers with a numerical designation.  Hard drives use a #7 usually, which is pretty small.

    I got my torx bits with my Swiss Army Cybertool pocket knife.
