Hello Experts and HP Users
Experts want KUDOs for help ; I see nothing but good advice and considerations !!
Thanks to all experts : you are helping many with an arrray of issues.
Thanks KUDOs to you.
I see various discusions at various places about warranty issues.
Can you supply some HP reference locations or general summary on what
does and does not void a warranty !!??
I would assume addding RAM and Video cards is AOK but maybe changing the
CPU and/or the cooling system and/or power suppy might void a warranty.
Please give us guidelines on how to proceed with machine upgrading without getting into
warranty trouble. Maybe HP has some guidelines and we just can't find them ??
thanks and KUDOs

In general, making any modifications to your PC that are not approved by HP or installed by an authorized HP Service provider could technically void your warranty. In practice, many do make upgrades to their PCs.
I haven't seen any posts where someone has modified their PC and HP had refused to honor the warranty. Maybe the PC was returned to the original state before warranty repairs were made but I do not know if that happens or not.
