Because (according to the specs) your model has the Intel processor and chipset you can. 2 x 4 GB of PC2-6400 memory.
Please see this related post.

That is correct.
The dv6000's with the nVidia chipset and the AMD Turion processors can only take a max of 2 x 2 GB of memory no matter what. I tested 2 x 4b chips in my dv6810us with the nVidia chipset and Turion processor and the PC would not boot.
I think that more than likely, 4 GB DDR2 memory modules were not available to test when the dv6700's came out, so HP kept the max at 2 x 2 GB for all of their dv6000 PC's--even the ones with the Mobile Intel 965 chipsets.
I also have a HP 8200 Elite CMT desktop PC. HP specs state max memory is 4 x 4 GB of PC3-10600 memory, but some guy just installed 4 x 8 GB of PC3-10600 memory for 32 GB.
Probably again because no 8 GB chips were available for testing. The chipset in my desktop supports 32 GB of memory, so I assume that is why it worked.
I may wait to see if the price for 8 GB memory chips comes down a little more. Currently, you can get 2 x 8 GB for around $100.
