Jump to solution

I have a Dell Inspiron 5567 laptop which is still in warranty. a few days ago I saw some dirt in the cooling hole so I was thinking of opening and cleaning it but if I open the back lid to clean it will become out of warranty?

The act of disassembling a laptop does not void the purchased warranty. In fact, the online Service Manual walks you through removing the base cover.
But, anything you break while disassembling a laptop is not covered. So if you crack the back cover, strip a screw hole, lose a screw, break some internal components, etc. these would not be covered.

The only time these would be covered by the warranty would be if Dell Technical Support via phone, chat, or email told you to disassemble the laptop.
