    Just lift the black plastic sheet right under the keyboard to see the empty memory slot.

    Thats the obvious memory slot there is another located in front of that closer to the touch pad but its hidden and you really have to disassemble the laptop to get to that one. I have had the laptop apart enough where I accessed the HDD and some of the other parts but not the 4th memory slot.

    The 4th slot, which is already filled at the factory, requires removing the screen and taking the entire bottom case apart.

    Hi and thanks for the awsome guide. I've been watching these threads for the last week or two and finally bought a G53JW-XR1 this past Sunday as well as 16gig ram and your guide totally helped with the first half of the process but I can honestly say getting to the fourth ram slot was a bear to get to and took just as long as the first three all together.

    lol at 16gb ram, what are you planning on doing to require 16gb ram?

    The sweet spot these days for common users using Vista/7 is 4gb ram, 6gb for enthusiast and 8gb ram for max benefit for running super duper programs etc..

    Are you just getting 16gb ram for bragging rights just so you could say you have the best?

    Anyone know the specs for the SSZ3128M8-EDJEF Asint memory, my Asus G53JW-A1 came with this chip in it. I have searched and that part number is not listed anywhere. What is the difference in Elpida and Hynix memory?

    That part number is showing 240 Pin according to Kingston our computers use 204 Pin, you could possibly burn something out powering the system with that ram in it.

    Kingston is good, Crucial is also good. I am sticking with the memory that came in it, just found a place that sells another 2Gb chip. Asint SSZ3128M8-EDJEF which is Elpida memory chips.
