This laptop supports 16GB of RAM!,
This review is from: HP Pavilion 17-e019dx 17-Inch Laptop (2.4GHz Intel i3-4000M Processor, 4 GB RAM, 750GB Hard Drive, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
First let me explain that this laptop is not some high end laptop for gaming. The five star is pure for what it offers for the price. You can get this laptop for 400$ at bestbuy and this is the only laptop that you get all the things that it offers in its price range.
Also, as per the user manual this laptop can support only 8GB of RAM. But i have actually installed 16GB (2*8GB) of ram and its working fine. I installed this [...] RAM with my laptop.

Hello, I'm very interested about upgrading my ram too. Did you have any problem so far with the 16gb ram installed? Because everywhere it says that it only supports 8, so I'm a little reluctant to do it hehe.

Same here. Initially I was not sure if it actually supports 16 GB. Thats why i went to best buy and got it fixed there (they charge a whopping 40$ just to install it). I have been using the 16GB for about 2 weeks now and no problem yet. I am using both Linux and Windows 8 and have no problem.

The reason it says the limit is 8GB of RAM is because it probably has 32-bit Windows, which (as a software limitation) will only use 8GB of RAM. So you could install 100GB of physical RAM into it, but don't expect a performance increase over 8GB...

What? It comes with Win 8 which is a 64 bit OS.

I think what he's trying to tell you is that windows 32 bit operating systems do not recognize more than 3.5 gigs of RAM. My dell has 4 gigs with XP but only sees 3.5. A 64 bit operating system does not have that limitation and can see much more RAM than a 32 bit system. Your operating Win8.1 which is a 64 bit system and it can see it, but the motherboard may lack the chips necessary to use it. Would be good to download some free RAM testing software to see if it is all being used by the motherboard.

Are you sure it's actually using all 16GB? Could you please run some RAM testing software to test it?

I removed Win8 and installed Linux and its using all of the 16GB.
