Ram Upgrade Pavilion dv7 3008TX

VZ500PA#ABG
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am currently running 2 x 4GB Ram cards(DDR 3 1066 MHz) for a total of 8 GB. I am finding that the system is regukarly "Hanging" eg 'Firefox not responding'. I have 2 x 500GB HDD which have approx. 60% free space. The system is heavily used for Photoshop activities with file sizes of 300 - 500 MB.

 

Is it possible to replace these memory boards with 2 x 8GB DDR 3 1066 MHz for a total of 16GB?

 

Thank you

Bob
