I have Lenovo B590 20206 laptop which is capable of using 16GB RAM. Chipset Intel HM70.
Recently bought and installed 2 sticks 8GB each. Advisor tool says:
Your Lenovo Lenovo B590system specs as shippedmemoryMaximum Memory:8GBSlots:2 (2 banks of 1)*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.

There is a huge difference between HM70 and HM77. The former supports only Celeron and Pentium. In case of Core i* installed, computer will shut down in 30 minutes.
@selecadm Thanks for letting us know. I will report it to our engineers and see if they can update.
