I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

One of my hard drives just failed after years of reliable service. A lot of valuable information was lost.

To avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to know just how old a drive is to know when it's time to be replaced.

Is there a program that can tell me when I drive was manufactured?
 

A:A program that shows Manufacture date?

Drive age doesn't really have much to do with 'drive failures'. Time in service increases the risk, but it's not a defining factor either.

The HDD should have a sticker on it showing date of manufacture. I don't know of a program.

Hi Could you please tell me if this is possible:
My computer is connected to a wireless network. Can I hook up my D-link (DIR-412) to my computer and use the internet from the computer to output another wireless area?

Thanks sounds complicated.
 

A:Connected to WIFI and want to extend wifi with another wireless router

Where you live is your setup like this?

#1
Internet
Modem
WiFi Router

or

#2
Internet
Modem with built-in WiFi Router

If you want extend the WiFi you would get WiFi Access Point. Or you can take a WiFi Router and disable NAT, SPI, DCHP, then you create a static IP address. 192.168.x.50

I need to extend my signal on my router. It is not going as far as I need. The place where I need it has an Ethernet port in the room but I would need to be able to wire from the piece of equipment that I decide to use there. It would probably best be a router unless an access point can have ports to hook up to additional equipment in the room that I already use. I know it is best to stay with the same brand and my router is NETGEAR DGN3500. Can anyone tell me what they would use? Thanks.
 

A:What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

Best to use either Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router (disable DHCP,VPN, SPI and NAT)

Example #1 using two Wireless Routers (note interwebs = modem)


Example #2 Using Wireless Router with Wireless Client Bridge with Wireless Access Point


There are also PowerLine Wireless (one box connects to our router lan port) uses AC power


These are the options you can use or just use Access Point which has Wireless features. That would connect to your Router as shown in the first example. Port 1 goes into the single port of Access Points to extend your Wireless where the room is not getting enough single to it.

Your model is also ADSL modem and router all you need to buy is either Powerline set or AP (Wireless Access Point) which has wired LAN connection port.

Hey everyone I have an old laptop with a battery that lasts about h in quot Power Saving quot mode I m going to be stuck next week for about hours at a location with few available public outlets and need to stretch my battery life as much as possible I ve already for battery to Looking life extend ways "techie" done the obvious generic tips of quot defragging the hard drive quot quot dimming the screen quot quot using few no external devices quot quot tweaking my power usage settings quot etc but it s not enough I m looking for some good quot techie quot solutions now like quot underclocking the CPU quot or quot removing the CD drive quot All suggestions are appreciated I d love to try to squeeze another hours out of this battery if possible no I don t have another battery and don t need to buy one just for this one event Thx PS Another idea Removing HDD and booting from USB Flash drive nbsp

A:Looking for "techie" ways to extend battery life

Removing the HDD and booting from a flash drive is probably the worst decision you can make. Flash drives have very slow speeds (even though they are flash memory, they arent fast) and very little capacity. Keep the HDD.

There are only a few more ways to improve battery life other than dimming your screen and adjusting the power usage settings. Under-clocking the CPU is really done by the "power saving" mode.

Try these suggestions:
1) Run this tool: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_battery_power_settings
2) Turn of your network adapter. There is usually a switch on the side of the PC that toggles the network adapter on and off. That will save you a ton of power. Also make sure bluetooth is off. I dont think your older PC will have it, but just make sure.
3) Use this tool to remove any unnecessary processes from start up. This will speed up your computer while also reducing the amount of processes that run (thus reducing CPU and RAM usage).

I can suggest other options, I just need your OS. If it is Windows 7, it is easy too, if it is XP, I cant really help there since I forgot the OS.

hi all

after a bit of a slog trying to log on here (had to setup a new user as my old one was not sending password resets) im finally on! phew

anyways im after a bit of advice with regards to extending my wireless range.

currently my setup is as follows

phone line > netgear ADSL2+ wireless router (834gv4 iirc)> eithernet cable to my pc (out of range)

however the other day I came across a netgear DG834GT super wireless adsl router.

does anyone know how I can set the DG834GT to act as a extender or repeater (not sure on the correct terminology here)

all I want to do is extend the signal to the few rooms that dont get it.

thanks
 

A:How to extend my wireless..?

What you need to do is setup the 2nd router as an access point. You run an ethernet cable from your first router (the one hooked up to the dsl modem) to the 2nd router but before you do thaqt configure the 2nd as an access point.. Also make sure the set it to a different channel and the same SSID. I can not give you specific instructions or even know for sure the the 834GT is capable but that is what you need to extend your range.

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help
 

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

I have a Windows PC built on the ASUS M A -CM Motherboard This motherboard has the ATI Radeon onboard video chipset For over a year I was running the video via the D-Sub port to a -inch LCD monitor with no problems A few months ago I wanted to extend my desktop to a second -inch LCD monitor so I purchased a PNY VCGFX PEB GeForce FX MB -bit DDR PCI Video Card I was looking for an inexpensive card that had two D-Sub ports This setup works okay most of the time Windows 2 Video to desktop extend to card monitors but the video performance is sluggish the video stalls and hesitates frequently Occasionally the whole system just stops working I never had these problems running Video card to extend Windows desktop to 2 monitors a single monitor with the onboard video Is the GeForce FX incapable of running Video card to extend Windows desktop to 2 monitors two monitors at the same rate as the ATI Radeon runs a single monitor Is there another video card I should consider both of my monitors have D-Sub ports but only one of them has a DVI port Thanks nbsp

A:Video card to extend Windows desktop to 2 monitors

I don't think any modern graphics card should struggle to run 2 monitors. I have a Hd4670 that happily ran both without an issue.

Have you tried un-installing your current Nvidia software, and then re-installing the latest software available from www.nvidia.com ?

So I upgraded my setup from Benq quot to Acer quot better resolution and they were cheap on newegg So I m selling one of the monitors in a package deal to my dad with a comp and the other went to my girlfriend so she can have monitors She has an old HP running XP MCE it has an AGP FX with Can display a even to FX another extend GF monitor? 5200 VGA and DVI outs I assumed perhaps incorrectly that that meant Can a GF FX 5200 even extend display to another monitor? she could run monitors like I do It seems she can only clone or expand horizontally or vertically the desktop instead of extending Expanding wouldn t be too bad except that both of the monitors she has are different resolution So extending is really the only usable option Is the FX just incapable of doing that I think this is something that should be handled outside of the Nvidia Control Panel since in every computer I ve seen a display extended on was able do do that just in the regular display properties I have at my disposal a PCI Radeon with VGA and DVI and a AGP GF GS I don t know if the will do what we want and I know the will but I don t think the will fit in the HP case and it seems unlikely the HP PSU will survive very long with the in there So before I go through cleaning out the Nvidia drivers to install a PCI I d like to see if anyone knows if its a physical limitation of the card nbsp

A:Can a GF FX 5200 even extend display to another monitor?

I thought the,"extend desktop", was a function of the driver, and not of the card. or (?)

That said, Nvidia shows a very current driver in association with your card and Win XP; http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

Disclaimer: Dual monitors annoy me, for this very reason, as does the new 16:9 aspect ratio, and the fact you can't run one monitor horizontally and one vertically from the same card.

After years of building PCs for friends and family I purchased a Dell Vostro 410 for work as it was a good deal.

Anyway as things happen, the jack pin from the speaker system broke off leaving the end in the pc.

Try as I might I could not pull it out and ended up drilling out really carefully. Unfortunately now cannot use the onboard sound and have installed a pci sound card.

From what I can see, there is no evidence of my abuse and I have paid for 4yr warranty, should I come clean and get a new mobo or just keep quiet?

Spent a good while "chatting" w/ NewEgg & Seagate - India about OEM vs "Retail" hard drives.

NewEgg clearly states on their site that many "OEM" Seagate internal drives drives have 5 yr parts & labor "Manufacturer's Warranty" (on the specific HDD specs page).

Seagate - India, tells me that drives designated as OEM will NOT have any warranty (or support) honored by Seagate to the end user.

For those w/ experience in this, what's the actual truth about OEM drives & warranties, from NewEgg or any other E-tailer?
 

A:Warranty difference OEM hard drive vs "Retail"

OEM you have to go by what the Manufacturer of company says as they're the one going to help you out. So OEM drives if you buy them from a vendor at a computer show they'll replacement for free. The vendor not the Manufacturer company. HDDs I just buy them wholesale and still get the protection from the manufacture. Unless NewEgg is going to protect after 5 years down the line, but you'll have to get that in writting..

Retail - Price is higher unless you get it on clearance then it would be the same price of OEM but you get protection

OEM - Price is cheaper low overhead
OEM - no hardware brackets
OEM - no retail box
OEM - no manual
OEM - no warranty (unless you a PC repair shop of PC vendor since you would buy in blunk)

Hi;
I am trying to extend the range/reception of my D-Link DI-720U router and DWL-G520 pci adapter with an external (omni) antenna.
I am getting a very weak signal, and sometimes no signal from the router, which is downstairs at the back of the house. The pc is upstairs in front of the house.
Total distance is about 30 feet. There is one ceiling/floor, and a couple of walls between the router and the pc.

A laptop with a D-Link DWL-G650 card is receiving a much better signal (by at least 25db) when placed in the same location as the pc's antenna.

I have been looking into the Pringle Can-Tenna and some store bought antenna as well.

Any ideas?

Thanks

A:Extend Wireless Range?

So one computer can receive good signal at a particular spot while another computer cannot?

It sounds like the computer that can't receive good signal has a faulty wireless card. You might consider a replacement.

A:WRNG: Dell users: Unmountable boot vol./Plz oh great mods, extend a "hand"

No need to feel like an *****.

First of all you can try using a windows 98 boot disk to boot to your CD. I'm not sure where that will get you, if you don't want to reinstall the OS (and lose everything).

Secondly, you shouldn't have a problem putting that HDD into an old computer and pulling the files off of it. Just make sure the jumper is set properly on the back of the drive (Master, Slave, or Cable Select). Plug it in and power it on, Windows should find the drive and allow you to transfer files.

As far as the error code goes and what can be done..... I don't have a great answer for you, but maybe someone else will. Just be patient and see what comes along.

Hello everyone I have searched for days trying to find the answer to a problem that I m having and haven t come up with any solution I have Connection extend routers to two range wireless two wireless routers a linksys BEFW S and a d-link DI- The D-Link is much faster but the range is horrible The range on the linksys is much better I would like to set them up so that computers connecting within the range of the d-link can take advantage of the speed but outside of the d-link the computer will connect through the linksys Is this even possible Or would it work to set it up so that one computer connects wirelessly through the d-link and one connects through the linksys That could work too I only have one DSL router and the linksys and d-link routers are sitting next too Connection two wireless routers to extend range each other I have tried connecting the linksys with an ethernet cable from the linksys port for internet to an open port on the d-link and configured them similarly but with separate ips Either way nothing I have done has worked and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a solution Your time is much appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:Connection two wireless routers to extend range

This should work OK I think. I'm not up on wireless, much prefer a bit of wire. I have two ADSL routers on my network (only one connected to my ISP) and all machines hook up OK using DCHP form the connected router. See as you can only have 1 DCHP server the wireless machines will probably need to have static addresses. I would think it will work better if the two routers were not too close.

Hi,
once when I've installed Win7, I've divided my HD to several partitions.
unfortunately i gave only 50 GB to drive C.

Now I would like to extend it, but the extend option is in gray.

my partitions status is attached.

is there anything i can do in order to merge partitions ?

thanks

Try using a different partition manager. I used to have problems with the default built-in Windows partition manager so I decided to use Acronis Disk Director Suite and my problems were solved. You may also want to try Paragon.

Right click on the free space and delete the Extended partition. You can then extend the C partition into the Unallocated space released.

You won't be able to extend the C: Partition to the left using the windows built in disk management. Only to the right.
If you want to extend to the left you will need to use a 3rd party Partition tool. Minitool partition wizard free will do the job.
I would advise taking a full backup/system image before moving the Windows partition. And have a 7 system repair disc on hand too. Also disable system restore before moving the partition. You can enable this again afterwards. When the windows partition moves to the left, the old system restore points will point to the old partition and won't work.

Has anyone carefully reviewed Comodo's hardware warranty? It will pay the user $500 malware permanently damages the system - beyond any repair - with CIS installed. In 99.99999% of cases a clean install of the OS fixes everything. And how are you going to prove that malware permanently broke your HDD, your screen, or any other hardware?

Comodo's Warranty is phrased and termed in a manner that makes it a virtual impossibility that Comodo will ever have to make a pay out.

It's all fine and good that Melih stands behind his products - but the warranty is absurd.

This illustrates the ridiculousness of it all...

I, HJLBX, will personally insure anyone - absolutely free of any cost - against "The Sky Falling," and will pay anyone who presents a valid claim - $1,000,000,000.

Such insurance is worthless.

Just sayin...

If anyone wants that Falling Sky insurance, then send me a PM.

A:how to extend c drive on windows 7?

C can only be extended into free space immediately following it.
If D is immediately after C, in Disk Management delete D and then right click on and extend C into the space created.
If there is any other layout you need a third party partition manager such as
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/. Be aware that there are (low) risks involved and you should back up your data before using a partition manager.
From the number of partitions you have it is clear that you must have an Extended partition containing logical partitions. This may limit what you can do without third party tools.

I have three of these monitors all connected to a single GTX 680. The center monitor is connected via HDMI and the two side monitors are connected via DVI. With only a single monitor enabled, there is no lag. When I enable a secondary or third monitor in Control Panel>Display>Extend desktop to this display, I get lag. FireFox scrolls unsmoothly and animations throughout Windows are sluggish. I have Minecraft opened on the center monitor. The ingame FPS counter always stays above 80 but "feels" like 40 FPS (it's not smooth). Any suggestions on what to do?

Enabling the secondary and third monitors with NVIDIA's Control Panel (Surround) doesn't give any lag but breaks window snapping so I'd really like to control the monitors with Windows Control Panel.

A:Lag/Laggy animations with multiple displays (Extend desktop)

Its interesting that the nvidia control panel does not cause lag when setting it up, but windows control panel causes the issue.
I'm guessing you probably already checked for updated graphics drivers?
I would say you are running to much for the card to handle. Yes its possible. What resoloution do you have for each monitor? Even the best cards might stutter under three monitor loads and games.
You might need to do a dual card setup.
But again, it works fine under nvidia so this is puzzling.

2 possible causes for this(I think):

1)Try checking that this setting 'Multi-display/mixed GPU acceleration' is not set to 'Single display performance mode' in the nVidia control panel (it's under 'Manage 3D settings'). Might take a look at that.

2) I don't have transparency enabled. I do not think it adds anything to the user experience and it isn't particularly good looking either. Otherwise Aero is still enabled aside from transparency.

Try a fps test and see what results you get.
Also, check your temperatures. If the card is getting really warm pushing all those displays and a game, it could be causing this issue. Although you said you were running mine craft....not exactaly a amazingly graphical game

Hope these thoughts somehow help...

Hi Guys,

I have a restaurant renting my downstairs premises with a hotspot that Im allowed

with their POS systems, so I can only access wirelessly.

They've given me the MAC address and IP of the router. I wanna know, if I have a
spare Netgear DGN2200, is there away to set it up as a repeater/extender, even if I
need to use 3rd party firmware, to take the signal I get strong in the one corner of my house and then repeat throughout from my spare router(as much as the router can).

Hello, my company has resold nearly 100 Acer laptops in the last year. All have worked great except one. It will not charge a battery. We have verified this by swapping batteries from identical units.
 
The real issue is that we cannot get this unit replaced. It was purchased from Newegg Business and when calling the support number and entering the SNID [edited for privacy]the automated system says it's out of warranty and sends us to the 3rd party.
 
So then we communicate with Newegg who says Acer has verified the warranty and for us to call back. This has been going on for over 7 months! Meaning in less than 5 months the real warranty will expire though this thing has never been used.
 
Please help!
 
Thanks!










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:No Warranty Support

Thanks, we tried that many times. The Newegg rep just found that by using the chat support and entering the full Serial Number it finally worked. The phone support nor chat would accept the SNID. So this was the root of the  problem.

A:Incorrect warranty start date

Hi @Jtsnr ,
 
I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publically post ( serial numbers and case details).
If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Hi Is it registered with HP? When registration occurs the warranty would be adjusted to start from the born on date (I think you press ESC and then F1 to view this). So if you could try that and then ask again if there is still a difficulty.

I have two issues. The first issue is that I purchased my Sprout on January 13, 2016 and when checking the warranty online it states that it started on November 6, 2015. I have read other forums about this being a known issue and I would like this fixed immediatly.  Secondly, I have just set up and started my new Sprout today. (It took a while because we just bought this house and wanted to make sure we had the office set up before we set up the Sprout.) The speakers DO NOT work. I have done everything that I could possibly think of to make them work and still nothing. I am currently on hold with HP Customer Service and have no spoken to a rep yet. I have been on hold for 15 minutes so far. Can someone please HELP me! Thank You 

A:My warranty start date is incorrect.

Brooklynn429, welcome to the forum. Here is a answer to how to deal with the difference in the waranty start date: We have a PoP process setup for this. Proof of Purchase. We don't have access to sales systems for everything we've sold through our partners and retailers so we have to use the good old fashion Proof of Purchase system. The customer simply sends (fax I think is the current method) us the receipt and we update the warranty status. That simple. I guess it goes without saying that they need to contact support for this. You will have to contact HP Customer Support to get this accomplished. As for your sound, I suggest going into the Control Panel / Sound to see if the speakers are selected as the Default.  Sometimes in Win 10 the settings are changed for no apparent reason. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

My PC came with the option to select a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD, or a 2 TB HDD. I selected the 2 TB HHD and then added a 256 GB SSD as the OS drive after purchase with no ill effects when restoring the factory image. One caveat, you must put the PC back to factory specs if it has to be serviced by HP. Some hardware changes can make it difficult to load the factory image. HP will do this (load the factory image) before returning the PC to you after performing warranty service. Cheers!

Hi everybody, I just bought a wonderful notebook Lenovo M30-70, I live in Italy. I would like to remove the original hard drive and replace it with a SSD, which I carefully checked the compatibility. My natural concern is: will I lose the warranty?  Thanks for your helpBest greetings Riccardo










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Notebook M30-70 - SSD and warranty

Technically opening the back of the laptop can void the warranty since there are no consumer replaceable parts (CRUs) inside your model.  Fortunately most Lenovo Service Centers understand that owners will upgrade the memory and change hard drives so they tend to over look the fact that the laptop has been previously opened.  If you use care in opening the laptop and center your activities on just replacing the hard drive I don't think you will have a problem, but keep in mind the Service Center makes that final determination.   Also keep in mind if the system ever needs to be sent in the warranty won't cover the new SSD drive.  That warranty is provided by the SSD drive's manufacturer. 
 
For your reference I have included a link below to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual that explain how to remove the exisiting hardware.  Please follow any advice or pre-cautions the manual has to offer.

Hi

Do you want to extend the notebook?s memory or HDD?
I think in your post you are talking about the ExpressCard Slot or Smart Card slot (this depends on the model you have purchased)
This slot handles the ExpressCards or Smart Cards

Here is a nice Wikipedia article about Express Cards:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ExpressCard

There are different ExpressCards on the market. You can use the SSD Express Cards or HDD Express Card to extend the storage or you can use Express Cards in order to upgrade the notebook with an TV tuner, 3G or similar?

I've got a Satellite Pro S300 and it won't extend the desk top to an external monitor / projector, but it will clone the desktop??

so far I've tried:
2 monitors and 1 projector all do the same, will clone but not extend.
Reinstalling the latest display drivers from the Toshiba site.
Reinstalling the latest change drivers from the Toshiba site.

But nothing has worked, I've even checked my colleagues S300 to make sure I'm using the same settings and theirs (2 other s300's) both extend and clone the desktop.

Has anyone seen this before and how did you rectify the problem?

A:Satellite Pro S300 - Can't extend the desktop to an external monitor

Have you removed the old driver first before you installed the new driver? If not try to reinstall the driver again. Therefore remove the old driver, restart the notebook, use CCleaner to clean the registry and install the new version that you can find on the Toshiba website.

Furthermore I would try updating the BIOS. You can find it on the Toshiba website too.

I hope it works for you.

Dear all

I am running Bloomberg and need the picture to extend on to two 24" full HD LCD screens. Including the integrated screen of my current laptop, I use three panels at once. Can I do that with the Z30 1 CZ? Will I have to buy a docking station for that?

At the moment I am using an ultrabook from a different manufacturer but I am not satisfied for reasons that have nothing to do with the display. Currently I use a docking station where one screen connects by DVI and the other by VGA cable.

With the Z30, can I just use the VGA and the HDMI ports of the laptop to get the same solution?
Best wishes,
Peter

A:Portege Z30 - need to extend display to two external screens

From my knowledge the display out ?feature? depends on the graphic card/chip.

Usually you can use either the VGA or HDMI output.
VGA (RGB) port provides analogue signal, HDMI provides digital signal and as far as I know you cannot use both at the same time?

However, you could purchase an "usb hdmi adapter? adapter which would allow you to use two external monitors simultaneously.

A:Inspiron 13 Out of Warranty, Boot Configuration Data crash

Hi REYLEE,
The OEM media is available for purchase while placing the order.
Ensure the HDD is fine before you troubleshoot the OS - Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
You would basically need the OEM media to repair the OS as stated in the first article you have posted.
If you are in the US / UK - you could order the media online - http://dell.to/12vcZ27

A:Out of patience with Dell's horrible warranty service

Tough luck. I've also have had more hardware issues than I can count, including trackpad failures, fan issues, lights burnt out, etc... I just continuously had stuff break on my $1400 laptop for no reason. 
After months of dealing with this ***, I decided I just wanted Dell to buy the laptop back from me or give me store credit as that's really the only repayment for the amount of stress and issues this laptop has brought me. I was basically told by the highest level sales manager that I cannot return the laptop and I just have to go the Dell's support system. There is really nothing you can do except constantly call in service requests and once your warranty expires, like me, you are pretty much screwed.
That being said, I will never buy any Dell product again.

Before I bougth it, I made sure that all waranty services can be done from Egypt but Lenovo Egypt refused to replace the laptop and the service provider refuses to fix the screen. It is really disappointing!!

Hello I just bought a refurbished laptop from staples and i'm wondering, do I have a one year warranty. It says it in the page but the staples manager told me to get a 1 year warranty from them because I don't have a warranty. Take note the page says "The warranty is covered by the manufacturer for 1 year" but Staples says I don't have a warranty.

A:Flex 2-14 - Warranty: Replacement policy

Hi wavare_ajinkya ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As a general rule, CRU (customer replaceable parts ) will not void the warranty as listed from the hardware manual . However most upgrades on this model shows that such are considered FRU (field replaceable unit) , meaning you would have to open up additional parts and might require skill and specific tools thus CRU ID is N. (item6 page 72 ).
 
1. Upgrading your RAM however would not void any warranty.
We had same issue discussed on this thread . 
On quotes: " Similar to this query is this case  for the Z500 replacement of optical drive which is also a CRU Id - N and this thread. 
 
 
Warranty agreement :
 
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 ." 
 
The answer would be no , upgrading  the harddrive ,RAM will not void your warranty not unless that original parts gets damage because of or during the process of upgrade. 
 
For best measure , you may give Lenovo Tech a call so that they would be able to note it on your account for the pc that you have plan for upgrades .
 
2. Changing the original operating system would not void the hardware warranty , but support for the software such as the new or original Operating System (example to restore it back/ drivers issue etc.) would be users responsibility and functionality thereof. 
 
Hope this answered your query .
 
Regards

I took my Acer Laptop to the computer shop to get my SSD fixed and when they finished it and got it home i noticed my drives where split into 2 drives of 50GB approximately; C: & D:.
I have been trying to merge or at least give some space to drive C: , but my extend volume button in the partition manager is gray, even tho i have allocated space.
please give me some advice.

A:Extend Volume on C: Drive grayed out, can't extend volume.

Disk Management will not do the extension, but Partition Wizard will do it.

Hello I am wondering what a normal response time for a replacement hard drive under warranty might be I had a client who's hard drive was diagnosed as faulty with the assistance of a Lenovo technicial on-line He told me the supply of a new hard drive would be between and days I just received an email yesterday telling me it would be shipped on May which is days from the time I called and had the on-line technician diagnose it was faulty But that is not all that is solution slow Very Warranty only to supply the hard drive then an installer will contact my client to arrange the installation Who knows how long that is going to take It is likely to be more than Three Weeks for this issue to be solved This is an unacceptable delay Lenovo Very slow Warranty solution - is that normal for your company nbsp I am in Australia the machine Very slow Warranty solution concerned has a serial number of PC C and the support reference is nbsp nbsp

So just now i checked the motherboard revision and the graphics chip on it . Dell has replaced my motherboard with a older refurbished version even though their own bios update caused the damage to my motherboard.
It has a ATI 1 GB 5470 HD instead of the one that i was having before the replacement (ATI 550v 1GB)
which is better than 5470HD
Does dell always cheat like this if people are ignorant ..wow!
(system config :inspiron 14r )

So I have had my XPS 13 for a couple months now. Recently I noticed some backlight bleed in the lower left corner. Also there is some uneven backlighting but that is unnoticeable by the naked eye only seen under a camera lense, I dont mind it. The lower left corner bleeding shows at even 25% brightness. The picture below shows the bleeding at 100% brightness, it actually looks worse. 
Its really disappointing that there is any bleeding at all on a ultrabook that cost 1500 dollars, I work really hard for my money. Now I was wondering, if Dell would cover this under there warranty. Has anyone dealt with this problem? If so how was Dell able to help, is it worth trying.
If it matters this is the Dell XPS 13 9350-1340SLV Core i5 128GB Signature Edition Laptop. Purchased in Canada at the Mircosoft Store.
Thanks

A:XPS 13 (Skylake) Backlight Bleeding & Warranty?

I also just purchased the same model in the Canada from the Microsoft Store and just noticed a bit of blacklight bleed in similar areas (an inch or two from the bottom of the screen, except for me its on the right hand side). Design flaw on some units or could Dell be giving Microsoft subpar units to sell?I would try contacting Microsoft since thats where you bought it from.
