Many techies love newegg for their low prices and fast shipping.
Not having any rig with triple channel memory, all I can say is it's best to add a matched set of 3 sticks (if your laptop supports)... with DDR2 is was a matched pair. Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Memory,Laptop Memory,204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM
Im sure Im running DDR2. My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ60-224NR. I attached some pictures so you may see more information
I am not an expert with RAM. Though, what has been said already is true for the most part.
DDR2 RAM sticks for laptops use 200 pins while DDR3 RAM sticks for Laptops use 204 pins. While I'm sure you could fit a DDR2 stick into a DDR3 slot, I don't think thats how it works.
That program may be giving a false reading, bear in mind. Every program has its quirks. If you live nearby a BestBuy I suggest bringing your laptop into it and asking their GeekSquad if it truly does support DDR3. Better to know for sure before buying it. Trust me, you don't want to have to return something you bought online. Its a hassle.
