Will upgrading to ssd on t530 void my warranty?

2013-09-27, 9:30 AM
Hello Lenovo discussions.

I recently ordered a crucial m500 for my new t530, still under warranty. Will the new ssd void the warranty I have?

Thanks

Not at all. Just follow the procedure in the User's Guide.

 

Incidentally, you can replace/upgrade any of the parts (RAM, HDD, battery, etc.) described in the UG without affecting the warranty. The parts don't have to be from Lenovo providing they have the same or better specifications as the parts that came with your ThinkPad.

 

Of course any non-Lenovo parts won't be covered under your ThinkPad warranty. If you upgrade, say from HDD to SDD, it's a good idea to keep the old, Lenovo part around in case you run into system problems in the future. That way you can put the original part back into the system to determine if the cause of the problem is with the replaced part or elsewhere in the system.
