Default Ram Please Help Very Confused?

I'm only 15 and my dad is pretty computer illiterate so I'll do my best to explain what I need.

Ok, basically I want to upgrade my laptops Ram to 1gb so I can play games that I want too.

However Im very confused if weather you can purchase a diffrent company manufactures Ram and put in your computer? My computers make doesn't manufacture ram, or I yet to find them.

Here's what my properties say:

Expansion 1 slot of 200pin SO-DIMM DDR module, expandable up to 1GB system memory
Support DDR 266/333/400 module.

I've read that guys guide to ram but that doesn't really help also looked at the comps manual and doesn't help.

Any 200pin Ram of the same kind will work. Open it up and check the speed. Its best to get the same speed.
