    ASUS N61Jq - installing more than 8GiB of RAM?

    I'm looking at getting more RAM for my laptop, and I'm wondering if anyone out there has tried installing more than 8GiB of RAM into this brand (or a similar brand) of laptop.

    According to Asus Support, it can only handle 8GiB, at most, but they're not always right.

    I do know that the 4GiB is currently comprised of 2x 2GiB sticks, and there are two more memory slots that are currently unused. I was hoping I could buy 2x 4GiB sticks, for a total of 12GiB, but if the machine won't recognise that much RAM then it's obviously a waste of money.

    So, anyone know? Or got any suggestions for testing it (without buying more RAM, only to find it doesn't work!)?
