Cannot identify a screw on a laptop. Looks like a hex screw except the points are a little more square and there is an outcrop in the center. It is on an old Toshiba Satellite M115–S3154.

Is this a used laptop? I feel like someone has opened it before and replaced the screws with these ones to prevent other people from tampering with it...
