Preferred Solution: Upgrading HDD and Warranty

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I wish to upgrade the hard drive to an ssd in my HP 15-ay167sa, i was wondering if this would void the warranty as i cant see any stickers that would be broken on the outside of the device. Thanks for any replies.

A:Does upgrading hdd to ssd void warranty?

Here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 60 and 66. For this model in order to switch to an M.2 mSSD you have to get a different adapter. There is one SATA port that can only be connected via a ribbon cable that comes off the correct caddy for either a 2.5 inch hard drive/SSD or an M.2 mSSD. Since your laptop has a hard drive you do have all the equipment to upgrade to a 2.5 inch wide SATA SSD 7mm or 9.5mm thick (other than the SSD itself) The whole section on replacing the hard drive is in the "forbidden zone" where it is supposed to only be done by an authorized technician. HP does not take a definitive position on this and I assume it is on a case-by-case basis. You can assume if you cause any damage during the upgrade you are on your own. And to be safe, you should assume if you open the rear cover you may not have a warranty. if it were my laptop I would not be hesitant to upgrade, but that kind of attitude gets me in trouble sometimes.  Post back with any more questions.

I have checked with a major computer manufacturer as to the status of the Warranty for customers who upgrade to W10.

I have been advised that : - "...... if the upgrade goes wrong and you are unable to revert to your previous OS, then this will result in your warranty being void ....."

I have further been advised that : - ".... if you have not created system recovery disks and therefore do not have recovery media, or should your recovery media fail to recover your system, you will either have to purchase recovery media from us or you will have to return the unit for an out of warranty repair.... ".

If your computer is still covered by a manufacturers warranty then, before upgrading you may want to obtain, in writing, from your manufacturer as to the status of your warranty should things go wrong and should your recovery media not work as expected.

I have a p7-1058uk that I bought a week ago.Just wondering if I decided to fit a graphics card, or more RAM, myself, will it affect my warranty?

A:Will upgrading computer void warranty?

Hi: Normally it will not affect the warranty unless you damage components when trying to install things yourself. For example, if you snap a memory slot trying to push in a memory module, HP won't cover the damage. They won't cover a blown power supply if you install a graphics card that exceeds the limits of the P/S. Also they will not support any parts you add unless they are HP parts supported or listed for your PC. Other than that, you are free to upgrade away. Paul

I have an asus A555L core i3, 4gb ram and an nvidia 930m. 4gb of ram is a bit less, so im planning to upgrade it. There is a removable cover, covering the ram slot screwed to the bottom of the laptop. If i add another 4 gb of ram by opening the cover, will my warranty be void. There are no stickers talking about warranty in the back. The screw is covered by a small circular black tape like thing.

A:Upgrading ram voids warranty? (ASUS)

It might, hard to say? You'd have to read the terms of the warranty. It likely says it OK as long as done my a reputable service center. How old is the laptop and when does the warranty run out? I have a K75DE, I opened the cover and swapped out the hard drive for an SSD shortly after I got it. There wasn't any stickers covering my access screws though. My warranty period has expired long ago now though. I didn't lose any sleep over opening mine up when I did it. I just saved the hard drive in case I ever had to get it serviced. I would have just swapped it back in.

Is it possible to upgrade from a limited warranty to an international warranty?  I have  laptops with more that 600 days worth of warranty cover.

A:Upgrading from Limited to International Warranty

Hi Peteskun,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It is possible for machine with limited warranty to have automatically have IWS but not all.
 
There are specific models that have International warranty as this depends on the availability of parts specially those that was not marketed to that country. Even if the same model , if the machine tye is different then parts such as the motherboard would not be available and is referred back to the country of purchase for the service.
 
Here are some FAQ to check on your model regarding IWS.
 
Upgrades for accidental damage protection and onsite repair maybe a good plan for you.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I bought a Lenov Ideapad 510 15IKB on 14th April 2017. Now I'm facing 2 issues with the warranty registration and warranty upgrade: Issue#1On April 16th I registered the base warranty of my product as it should start from the purchase date of my product.

It was starting from 14th April 2017 and ending on 13th April 2018. I checked the same on lenovo website.

Hello,

I am currently wanting to begin the process of upgrading various parts of my computer in the upcoming months. The first item I would like to do upgrade is the RAM. I am currently using 8BG (4x2) and would like to double that. I was thinking of going with the Corsair Vengeance 2x8. Eventually I would like to have a pretty sick gaming computer. As of right now, it can handle a lot but can struggle from time to time if I crank up the graphic settings.

I guess the reason I am posting this is to ask a few questions. Would upgrading RAM be a good starting point if wanting to upgrade other hardware as well. I was thinking of also swapping out the video card, cpu, and adding some fans (when I get money that is). I must sound like a complete novice right now lol.. but, I am ready to finally go through with this because my computer is starting to feel like it is getting behind the times in terms of speed and performance haha. Anyway, any insight into this topic and or first time upgrading, specifically with the RAM, would be grrreat. Thanks.

I've managed to upgrade some of my home PC's from Win 7 or Win 8 to Wn 10 without any significant problems, but I am having major difficulty upgrading one of my PC's.

It is running Win 7 Home 32-bit and when I originally ran the Windows 10 upgrade advisor, it indicated that I could not upgrade as my NVidia GEForce 6600 graphics card was incompatible with Windows 10.

I tried various workarounds, using suggestions on this and other sites, to upgrade with the GEForce card but none were successful. So I purchased and installed a new graphics card - an AMD Radeon R7 240, which should be Win 10 compatible.

I then re-ran the Win 10 upgrade advisor - it still said that I couldn't upgrade as the "GeForce 6600 card" was incompatible - even though it was no longer installed!

I checked the Device Manager and the graphics card was clearly showing as being the AMD card. I then explicitly uninstalled any NVidia drivers/software using the Control Panel/Program uninstall - still unable to upgrade to Win 10. I also ran the Wagnard tools "Display driver uninstaller" and removed any NVidia software/drivers - still unable to upgrade. I am using the latest drivers from the AMD website.

I also tried to upgrade using the Media Creation tool and a Win 7 image from DVD (previously this also failed to work and gave the incompatible graphics card error); this seemed to work up to a point, but after a reboot it wanted me to select a keyboard layout but neither my usb keyboard no...

Hi,

I bought Windows 7 having come from Vista. However, there is a BIOS update for my system. The new BIOS update states: The BIOS updates the fan control algorithm of the system, and turns the fan on at low volume while your notebook PC is operational. If you are currently experiencing any symptoms on your notebook PC, please contact HP for support. It is located here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...340180&lang=en

I'd love to flash it but not sure if it will ruin my computer as it's more than likely not designed for flash when Windows 7 is on it or do you's know any better?

I also have 2 blue vertical lines going do the right hand side of the screen. I've seen loads of problems but no solutions. Has any fixed this HP problem?

Cheers folks!

A:Upgrading BIOS after Upgrading from Vista to 7

The BIOS is the stuff that happens BEFORE Windows starts to load.
Do you have issues with overheating or with the fan? If so, the BIOS update is for you.
Also, BIOS flashes are dangerous - and you can turn your computer into a paperweight by doing it incorrectly. In short, if it ain't broke - don't fix it!

The type of lines that you describe on your screen are usually caused by hardware issues. Send it in for repair if the system is under warranty. If not, then get an estimate from a local computer store - it may be cheaper to live with it.

Hello, I have a precision 5520 with a SSD M.2 and I'm thinking of adding a second HDD in the free slot. I've read an old post about this procedure and, in theory, there aren't any warranty issues if I simply remove the new HDD when I will send the laptop to Assistence. Can you confirm that?
thank you 

A:Warranty 2nd HDD

Correct.  There are only two things to be aware of here:
- The Dell warranty won't cover the 2nd hard drive since you're purchasing it yourself. The only possible exceptions are that if you buy it from Dell, it may come with its own warranty, and sometimes products purchased through Dell specify that when used in/with a Dell system, the product inherits the system's warranty.
- If you break anything on the system while installing the second drive yourself, that damage would obviously not be covered by your system warranty.

I bought a refurbished Latitude E6320 about two months ago, and the system gave me a warning 2 days ago saying the battery is reaching its life cycle and It need to replace a new battery. After I tried to call and online chat with different dell departments for hours including chat with one very rude custom service person, I was finally told that they get a lot of similar complains, it is normal and I can not expect the battery better than that. Should the furbished laptop not be similar to the new one? introduction of this laptop on shop said the battery should last 4 to 6 hours when I made the purchase, my laptop is less than half of it.
This is not the first time there are issues with my dell laptops. but the warranty is just ridiculous for a laptop bought 2 months ago. This is the first refurbished computer that I ever bought, and I hope this is the last laptop I bought from dell.

A:warranty?

If the battery is original to the system, it's between 4 and 5 years old - and likely well past its design life.  A "refurbished" system of that model is not the same as a "refurbished" new system - was it purchased direct from Dell, or elsewhere?

Hi tecnologica , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Removing the harddrive will not void the warranty , for as long as none is broken accidentally. 
Parts declared as CRU or Customer Replaceable Parts like harddrive and RAM , are parts that do not require advance expertise. 
I have here the CRU list and guideline steps (appendix A page 33)
 
However FRU or Field Replaceable Units are  those that needs a certified tech to disassemble against warranty. 
 
To check the warranty type you have a a specific machine click here. 
For repair needs you may call in tech support. 
 
Hope this answered your query.

RELEVANCY SCORE 29.6

Hi! I have a quick question, my laptop came with a mechanical hard disk which i would like to replace with a solid state.The problem is that there is a sticker saying "Warranty void if label tampered with or removed" covering one of the screws. The end date of warranty is until Jul 2017. What i should do? Why HP is doing this really? I never owned a laptop which was impossible to upgrade the ram or the hdd...  

A:Warranty & SSD

Hi, I know many vendors do that. I always say, HP should do the same. In this case, you need to contact an Authorized Service Provider parts, they will perdorm this work for you. Regards.
