Double-check if your computer is DDR SDRAM or SDRAM.

Okay. Does it tell you the speed your motherboard supports or the speed of the stick of RAM you have currently installed?

No not any SDRAM would work, it's not the amount, it's the speed you have to consider.

DDR SD Memory

DDR2 SD Memory

Getting these two mixed up is a bad thing to do,
also if it's an apple notebook, it might not work
