asus n56vm-ab71 works fine with 12gb(8gb+4gb) ram upgrade( ddr3 1600 sodimm 204 pin cl11) but not with 16gb(8gb+8gb)...shows black screen .....Individually all the RAM(4gb,8gb,8gb) are working fine... any idea how to fix this problem.....

Points:
- are both 8GB modules IDENTICAL?
- perhaps a BIOS update is needed.
- black screen completely? (No BIOS).

Troubleshooting:
1) Update the BIOS
2) Insert one 8GB module.
3) Modify the BIOS to the LOWEST frequency allowed for your RAM.
4) Add the 8GB module.

Also, did the laptop come with a 4GB + 8GB setup? If so, that's weird because that would only operate at HALF the speed of having two sticks with the same capacity.
