upgraded ram on G570 laptop to 16 GB, but waking from 'sleep' or 'hibernate' gives blue screen


I know the 'official' max ram on the G570 laptop is 8 GB, but some users report no problems going up to 16 GB. So I went for it and it works just fine except that waking from 'sleep' or 'hibernate' occasionally causes the blue screen. Everything else is fine. All 16 GB is available to software. I checked using memtester on an ubuntu linux install running on VM ware (on top of windows 7).


So my question is - is there some workarond that will make my machine play nice with 16 GB? Bios upgrade? Some 3rd party OS patch? Anything? 


Any and all advice is much appreciated!
