RAM Upgrade to 16GB possible for HP-DV7-3150ed? BIOS settings correct?

HP Pavilion Dv7 3150-ed
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

WC161EA#ABH is productnummer. Handleiding zegt dat 2*8 GB RAM wordt ondersteund.- voor Intel Processor Met W10 64 bit. Zie Maintenance and Service Guide op pagina 5. Ik heb vervolgs 2 * 8GB besteld. Zie  http://www.replacedirect.nl/product/p0140194/kingston-laptop-geheugen-ddr3-16gb-1333mhz-8gbx2.html  . Past echter niet- geeft foutmelding bij opstarten. Dient eerst een BIOS setting te worden aangepast?  Hoe zorg ik dat deze machine kan werken met 16GB?
Vriendelijk dank.

 

WC161EA#ABH  is Productnumber. Maintenance and Service Guide at page  5 mentions 16GB is supported (For HP 3150-ed with INTEL processor & 64 Bit )  However, when 2*8GB RAM memory was installed it generates an error message at start up. (RAM type = http://www.replacedirect.nl/product/p0140194/kingston-laptop-geheugen-ddr3-16gb-1333mhz-8gbx2.html)

How to make this work? Does BIOS needs to be adjusted ? any other tips are welcome.
