As far as I have learnt,MSI will not charge me.
But they will refuse to use the ADATA RAM,even if they do ,with much reluctance...
They are saying that using ADATA RAM will raise issues...what type of issues nobody knows!!!!:!::?::chinscratch:
IF MSI has some public forum, post there if they refuse to install your RAM, use other social media sites as well.

Just ask them to give this in writing(that adata ram cause issue in msi laptop) & tell them you will use it to get refund from amazon. Most likely they will agree to install ram.

P.S. also contact this msi rep in reddit:

Except for the Warranty & Service Center issues,this Laptop MSI Modern 14 B10MW-220IN seems to be quite a promising laptop for non-gamers alike me.

AS per reddit forum as advised by @whitestar_999 , they are saying that Laptop warranty will be void if I destroy the Factory Seal. One user/member advised to use a hair dryer so as to peel off the label ,and after attaching the RAM,it SHOULD BE PASTED properly ACCORDING TO POSITION it was initially. Friend, @whitestar_999 , do you recommend this?

No, that hair dryer trick may not work for all types of stickers & even where it works it can only be done by someone experienced.

15 months of warranty for this laptop already ascertained.

Forget it, just get the ram upgraded at service centre by paying service charge of around 500-600.
But suppose the service center guys deliberately damages a component while attaching RAM,then what shall I do?
Do I need to go to the service center,time to time?

That is why they ask you to sign/confirm the product condition before taking it & also before giving it to you after repair. You should just look for properly reattached warranty stickers(take pics/record video if in doubt before giving laptop & before taking laptop after repair) & any physical scratch/damage etc on the outside body of laptop. After that you should turn on the laptop & use it for 5-10 min with & without battery to see everything is working fine(keep some benchmarking tools to run in pen drive/laptop).

Then what to do,Friend?
If the corner of the label is torn a little,it means the warranty is void?
No. It will void only if the there is a big fat hole in it and signifies that you put your screw driver thru the sticker and unscrewed the screw. this much damage is acceptable.
You haven't seen the excuses given by some service centres then, if the label is slightly torn even at the corner then it will be taking a chance with warranty. If you are lucky service centre will not say anything but if not then expect a warranty void reply.

@kg11sgbg as you say "Your choice your decision".

Will this be treated as Tampered?


Factory Seal
Should be fine.

Well yes, but that time he has to take it further up and maybe even consumer court

@whitestar_999 , @RumbaMon19 , @thetechfreak and others, now I am a bit skeptical about the no. of RAM slots in this MSI Modern 14 B10MW-220IN laptop which i had purchased.
Some say there is only a single slot. Some say,there is another free RAM slot for upgrades.

As according to CPU-Z,inside the tool at SPD column,it shows there are 2 slots for RAM. Only one is occupied.

What to do Friends? @whitestar_999 ???

Didn't the service centre guy clarified it, I mean if he asked you to get samsung/hynix ram to increase capacity then shouldn't it mean there is an extra slot.

If CPUZ shows 2 slots, then there are 2 slots (1 might be soldered though). Check your laptop's manual that should be available somewhere in MSI's website, a service manual. If not, find in MSI US website.
