Windows 7: Upgrading RAM

I'm guilty, tl;dr. (after typing this, I went back to read it; too curious, and partially I know my responses can be quite lengthy themselves...)

But yah they can surely get you for using untested RAM when it comes to repairing something. Something similar happened to my cousin with his car; put on some trivial thing like an air intake or something and they said, "You modified this beyond out tested vision, therefore you have voided your warranty.

I'd take the aforementioned views on putting back the stock RAM in prior to warranty work being done a decent idea, but you have a couple questions: Are you an ethical man that abides by another's code of conduct (assuming you agree with the terms of their warranty or not), and have by implicitly admitted that you installed the RAM, because therefore you have admitted to voiding the warranty:

assuming this guy your e-mailing doesn't spread word of this somehow to the "warranty people" elsewhere, as to hinder your future warranty issues in the future (not sure if that's legal or anything on their part, but I'm an illogical, passionate, paranoid person sometimes, heh)

Good work putting it in without frying anything, though, heh.
