Do lost screws void the warranty on a Thinkpad?

I uncovered an old Thinkpad and took it apart a little bit. I put all the parts back, but I lost some of the screws. I recently found out it was still under a 3 year warranty. Is it still valid?

Which screws did you lose?

I would say no if it's just on the bottom case, but anything further then perhaps. There are instances where a sticker is placed over a screw, and in that case, I would say yes.
