what is the model of your compaq? go here if you know the model of your laptop.
you don't have to buy crucial, but it is handy if you don't know what speed it is.
actually i found someone with a compaq

Works perfectly with my HP zd7000 notebook. Ran 3 passes with memtest, and no errors were reported. Very fast delivery from NewEgg.

Carefully popped this into my 700m, and it worked like a charm. Big speed increase with file swap set to zero. Newegg.com delivered it fast. Thanks!

2Gig works perfectly for two months in an HP zd7000. Much less expensive than buying from HP.
As usual, extremely fast delivery from NewEgg.
my under standing is that, ram is ram. the ram you find in a new ibook is the same that you will find in your compaq. it is all ddr, the difference is the speed. several ppl mentioned putting it in a dell or other PC maker's laptop.
