Windows 7 64bit can support up to 192Gb of memory ( this is for the Ultimate, Enterprise and Professional versions only ), however the 8Gb limit you see for your notebook is due to the Motherboard and it will not support more than 4Gb per slot.


This is also confirmed by the upgrade option on


Memory limits for Windows 7 can be found Here.
