I recently bought a Lenovo laptop ( Lenovo IdeaPad 52015IKB-80YL) as far as now, it has worked excellent -except that HDD sound kinda rattling. I am just wondering that ı already have 1 TB HDD but ı also want to add SSD instead of DVD slot. I don't need that DVD, and ı am pretty sure that with the required stuff ı can do it. But my problem is with the warranty. If ı do it myself -since the technical services don't do- does it broke my whole warranty right? I mean ı got 3 years warranty right but HDD is not performing well, so do ı have to wait 3 years to upgrade to SSD?

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.
I dont think adding and extra storage drive will void the warranty.
But in any case, you will have to make sure that you do not damage anything on/in the unit, and the warranty should be fine.
Also, unless the extension is from Lenovo, then the warranty will not actually cover any 3rd party parts. Which means, should you need to send it for repair, they may remove it. But this is why you should hold on to any original parts, and should a repair be required, then return the unit to the original setup.
Also, it may be worth gettin in touch with your local Lenovo support line, they should be able to give you a proper confirmation on this issue:
