It should be 2 x 4 gb.

My G53SW-A1 has 2 4GB sticks. One goes under the keyboard and one goes by the hard drive. There are some videos on youtube showing how to take the bottom panel off. It's very simple and shouldn't take much time. I found this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ev8y8xlCdHE&feature=related) helpful.

Good luck.

Question: Do you really need more RAM?

You better with 2 sticks than 4, with 4 you may have to play with the voltage in the bios to make it work, higher voltage = higher temp, aside 4 stick may drain more battery than 2 , I also ask why you will need 16 GB in a note book, are you using VM ?
