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

See page 5....on that model series 16 gigs is expressly specified in the 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.
8-GB memory module for use only with computer models equipped with an Intel processor (DDR3, 10600, 1333-MHz) 634091-001
