Does IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81BF004NRI

2017-11-23, 15:31 PM

Just got my brand new Ideapad 520-15IKB (type BF81), and it is without optical drive.

Will adding a DVD RW void my warranty?

I want to get an original one with the color of my notebook, Bronze Metal.

Hi stefboy01,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

In general sense, upgrades such as adding optical drive should not void the hardware warranty as long as nothing gets damaged during and after the process taken. This however may be different from each region as Optical drives are non CRU parts (non customer replaceable parts as it would need special tools to perform).

 

Detailed discussion about warranty and upgrades here.

 

Best action plan is to just inform technical support of your planed upgrade. It would also help them document the upgrades since those we add is not part of the original in-warranty parts to avoid confusion in future repairs.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

If you are thinking of running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 on this laptop, you should proceed with caution, as Microsoft, Intel, and other manufacturers have decided not to provide any drivers for it for those operating systems.  See here:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/lenovo-ideapad-310-15ikb-80tv-drivers-need-for-windows-8-1-pro/m-p/3940753#M51996

 

The laptop is intended to be used with Windows 10, so that should be OK.
