Manual says it supports 1 GB, 2 GB, and 4 GB RAM modules, with maximum RAM of 8 GB.

Those are the limits that Dell validated for this system. While you may be able to physically install 2x 8GB, it may not be correctly recognized and/or may not work right.

If you do this upgrade and have problems, crashes, and/or data losses, Dell won't be responsible... emoticon.Wink.title

Too bad! I do not have enough 8 GB, and it's scary to check scary (I hoped that the BIOS was updated and now supports 16 GB
