Dear Pankaj, 

Thank you for contacting Lenovo Support Centre.

We understand the issue, since you have upgraded the OS you have voided the warranty and hence we would not be able to assist you hence we kindly request 
You to visit nearest service center and  get the issue resolved.

Please reply to consumerts@lenovo.com to avoid any delay in service.

We appreciate your business with Lenovo.
Thanks and regards,
Shylesh

I think there is something wrong with the entry specifically in "Problem Category". It should be "Windows Installation and Update" not "Windows Installation and Upgrade". There is a big difference between the two words update and upgrade.

 

If you upgrade or downgrade I think you void the warrantee but if you update you will not. Microsoft has always provide automatic update to its OS and programs every month and I don't think this will void the warrantee.

They don't have any other category in the drop box.

Weird. I changed OS on my laptop multiple times, upgrade, downgrade, testing various Linux distros and it haven't voided my warranty. o.o

@forktailedevil:

 

I think its better to give them a call.

 

@pisarz1958:

 

I agree with you. I've been reading postings in the forum and members are changing(upgrading/downgrading or changing to Linux,etc.) their OS without asking about voiding warrantee.
