I've had a Lenovo Y580 for about an year now and it has started to heat up to really high temperatures about 65 degrees on the hdd and above 90 on the graphics card and cpu. I contacted the Lenovo support center in my region and the person advised me to clean my laptop instead of sending it for repair. So my question is if I open up the laptop to reach the motherboard will it void warranty and if I decide to replace the thermal paste will this void the warranty?

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
Opening the computer will not void your warranty, same as replacing/upgrading some parts.
but, damages on parts or cosmetics during the replacement won't be covered.
Just be extra careful on opening the system and here check this manual of your system disassembly.
check this article about warranty concerns
also check this one that I use for thermal paste replacement.
Hope this helps,

I have noticed that my Y580 is heating up (average CPU temp is 85-90 degrees or so) and my gaming performance seems to suffer. How do I go about cleaning the system?
Also, Te4ko, what program did you use to monitor the temperatures?

Thanks, I was already using Core Temp, thanks for the other two. By the way, does nVidia Inspector show you fan activity? For some reason fan usage is always at 0% for me, so I wonder if my fan is dead or if the software is not requesting the information properly.
