Will my warranty be voided if I open my Flex 15iwl 81sr000bus?

2020-02-01, 22:18 PM

I got this laptop about 6 months ago, my dad said it would void my warranty even if I were to just took a peek inside. He says there's a type of paste in with the screws so they would know if it was opened. Would it void my dad's warranty if I was to open it? It's a $700 laptop with 5 months of warranty left so it feels like I shouldn't.

Solved! See the solution

Your dad is correct in that if you open the laptop up you risk voiding the warranty, so while under warranty I would suggest you listen to your father.    Furthermore, just removing the screws is not enough to open the cover, you need special tools to unlock the plastic tabs around the edge, which will break if not properly removed.     

 

I would even suggest that your father extend your laptops warranty by a year or two (which can be done while your existing warranty is still valid for a small cost) because laptops are just prone to more problems than desktops..

 

If you are just curious what it looks like inside, here is a picture of the inside of a Flex 15

I'm fairly confident that the battery is an L shape, and isn't that piece next to the hinge

Then it probably looks more like this one, which is a FLEX-15IWL 81SR
