I have Lenovo Z41-70 laptop and I wanted to check;
Can I replace the hard drive with ssd of mine and still have warranty for the rest of the laptop?
I managed to open the computer and apparently there is a sticker on one of the screws (that holding the drive).
If I take it out, I will void my warranty?

Hi Urix ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Yes. you may upgrade your HDD to SSD and you would still keep the warranty for the original parts.
It will not void your warranty.
Upgradable parts are mostly Customer Replaceable Units (CRU) like harddrive , RAM , Optical drive and battery. Lenovo do not limit customer on maximizing the potential of the machine.
Same reason why manuals are being carried out to provide steps accessible to customers for reference guide.
Check on hardware manual if the parts are considered CRU .
What this Warranty Does not Cover
- failure or damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, natural disasters, power surges, improper maintenance, or use not in accordance with product information materials
-damage caused by a non-authorized service provider
-failure of, or damage caused by, any third party products, including those that Lenovo may provide or integrate into the Lenovo product at your request
Warranty is not covered if during the process of modification , damage or accidents may incur both on the replaced parts and the original devices .
If in the future that you may need to have your computer serviced, tech support would ask for the original parts which are the only ones covered by the warranty for repair.
You may also call in tech support for confirmation and case number for reference if needed.
Hope you find this helpful.
Update us how it goes .
