I am in need to upgrade RAM of my laptop LENOVO THINKPAD EDGE SERIES E530 PART NO.
3259T2Q.Currently it has 4GB (2 x 2gb).
I am not sure how much I can expand RAM Memory upto?
Here I am confused as while refering the Lenovo website ( http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-edge- laptops/thinkpad-edge-e530/3259/t2q and http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd024684 ) , its says that my laptop model supports Memory 2 GB, 4 GB or 8 GB Up to 8 GB DDR3 1600Mhz (2 DIMM slot)
I have done a lot research on web but official document from Lenovo contradicts with
the scanners results as Lenovo says it supports max upto 8 GB only
Please suggest on max RAM supportibility for my Laptop.

My laptop have Processor – Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2328M CPU @ 2.20GHz, Chipset-Northbridge:Intel Sandy Bridge rev. 09,Southbridge Intel HM77 rev. 04, BIOS Properties:Vendor LENOVO Version H0ET94WW (2.54 ). As per the suggestion as of now, I have understood that Chipset/CPU can support 16 gb but it is the motherboard/bios which can restrict it to support max 8gb as specified in the official documentation of e530 by Lenovo.Is there any to way check max RAM support in specific with BIOS version/motherboard?
