Normally it will not affect the warranty unless you damage components when trying to install things yourself.
For example, if you snap a memory slot trying to push in a memory module, HP won't cover the damage.
They won't cover a blown power supply if you install a graphics card that exceeds the limits of the P/S.
Also they will not support any parts you add unless they are HP parts supported or listed for your PC.
Other than that, you are free to upgrade away.

The memory is not supported by HP, but it is warranteed by Crucial for life.
I just returned a stick last week to Crucial for replacement.
Just check your product specs page where you see the specs on your P/S. You only need to be concerned with the power requirements of the graphics adapter you install, you can max out the memory without concern to power.
Your P/S is rated at 300W, which means any graphics adapter you install should not exceed this limit. Most graphics card manufacturers list the minimum P/S requirements for their hardware.

Now I have a trojan.adh.2 virus and im going to take it to warranty will the upgrade void my warranty?
And will they open the computer case to check?
Note that the virus did not come from any of the upgrades..
