Will adding my own SSD cache drive void my warranty?

Hi,
I've ordered a Thinkpad S540, without the mSATA cache drive as I wanted to install a bigger drive by myself. I'm wondering if doing so would void my warranty. Thanks in advance!

Hi Nithin32,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per your query we understood that you are looking to change the HDD drive to SSD on ThinkPad S540.

 

SSD upgrade will not void the warranty but you may not be able to get support if something goes wrong with the upgrade (i.e. the OS won't load / install, some proprietary Lenovo software’s won't work, etc.).

 

Also, depending on the place where you purchased the unit, some stores put a warranty sticker on the screw slots so any signs of tear will automatically void the warranty.

 

Hope this helps.  

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

Hi, I am looking to buy a t440s on the lenovo website, I am planning to replace the original 500gb mechanic hard drive with a new 256gb ssd, will that affect my warranty?

Hi Wjkh,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per your query we understood that you are looking for upgrading SSD drive on ThinkPad T440s.

 

Instead of upgrading the 500 GB HDD to 256Gb SSD you can purchase the system which comes with 256Gb SSD drive, below is the link where I have provided some model which comes with 256Gb SSD drive for ThinkPad T440s.

 

However you can upgrade the drive and it won’t affect to your warranty, but you have to make sure that system won’t get any physical damage or mishandling while replacing the drive, you have to take full responsibility while replacing the drive.  

 

Because the warranty will not cover for physical damage or mishandling the system. I request you to visit nearby Lenovo authorized service center for further assistance.

 

ThinkPad T440s

 

Hope this helps!
