I believe on Intel Core 2d gen Quad Core systems they will recognize 16 gigs. But it would help if you could provide your exact model number. dv7-5xxxaa? 

 

The 16 gig thing is not reflected in the Manual but has been discovered by users

Absolutely. 

 

See page 5....on that model series 16 gigs is expressly specified in the manual:

 

Manual

 

Both the dv7-5xxx and the dv7-6xxx series used 2d gen Quad Core CPUs but on different chipsets and yours has always been known to take 16 gigs.
