The shop will not accept the memory back if it doesn't work...
Any help appreciated
The speed will not be the problem. The specification DDR
are also for footprint, voltage, speed, etc. Check the linked references.
You should spec your memory within the laptops class. Even if you can get a DDR3 and your laptop specs a DDR, it won't fit. If you have DDR2 then get DDR2.
