at the moment my Elitebook 8540w contains 2x2gb PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333), i would like to upgrade this to 2x4gb PC3-14900 (DDR3-1866). Is this fully compatible and would i get the full benifits of the extra speed?

Below is the link to the quickspecs for your notebook.
See page 18 for the memory info.
The short answer is no, you will not gain any advantage using PC3-14900 memory, and it may not even work.
I recommend you stick with the PC3-1333 (10600) memory. Do not get PC3-10666 memory. I haven't read about anyone that gets that memory to work in HP PC's.
