Is there anything special about the memory in the G53JW? I wanted to add an additional 2gb bringing it up to 8gb total, but 3 different so-dimms did not work in the G53jw. After installing, laptop will power on for a few seconds and then power off. Any advice on what memory is compatible?

Thanks

I still have this one handy:

It doesn't work.

This 4gb one doesn't work either:

it could be the memory compatibility issue, supertalent is not my first pick in memory choice

I tried Super Talent (Micron chips are quite compatible), Patriot, and G. Skill. All do the same when inserted, laptop powers up for a second then shuts back down.
