    Greetings, I have computer with successfully applied BIOS mod, running genuine Windows7 atm.
    Now I have to send the laptop to warranty servicing due to hw failure. Before that, I needed to know if the service is able to detect modified BIOS which could lead to cancelling my warranty. The laptop was sold as no-OS without OEM table in BIOS, I think.

    When ever you send in a laptop you should not send your hard drive anyway. So the question you put above does not matter.

    You really should not be sending in your hard drive with it.

    Thanks for the info. No-OS laptops have the same long warranty as usual models if I'm right.

    The hard drive is the failed part ;) but anyway I think the BIOSmod is applied to BIOS which is tied to MoBo, but I may be mistaken.

    I have sent laptops in to several manufactures with mod-bios, genuine Win 7 - Genuine Windows Vista and XP. every version hacked. and 100% not legit... most tech repairs honestly care less.
    but they do removed porn and such, private address and etc etc... because I have had them send memos back about such things .. which should be removed prior to sending.
    many of them get bonus for such ... like college students who have info about grades, dorm cameras, and such...

    And why would you ever give that advice the hard drive IS part of the laptop what if it was the hard drive causing hardware failure they would never be able to check out full system.

    Hello.
    I’m just here to get posts to be able to share.
    Warranties only cover hardware, anyway. Unless there are other agreements agreed upon (or they suspect OCing) one is covered.
    1)Check with the manufacturer.
    I dread sending the wife’s lappy back for another CD/DVD drive, but if I do, I’ll image the HD and send them a fresh install. If that is not possible, I’ll get a new HD along with. Warranties are great if one cares to hand a baby to a stranger. I’ll never buy another. Unless it’s a billion dollar machine. (Along with edit)
