You can't mix DDR and DDR2 they are two different memory types. If you post your laptops make and model I'm sure we can point you in the right direction in memory type and brand

You need to get DDR which is 184-pin. Do you have any more RAM slots in your laptop? If so, you can get these which are really good and on sale (see regular price). If you need to get a 2x1gb set then I really don't think there is a set for under 50 bucks.

Edit: Also, if you could find out the make+model of your current RAM it would be to your advantage to get 2 of the same sticks (helps stability).

DO NOT listen to AlexF. You can't get 184 pin RAM for a laptop!!!

Look at this list of RAM compatible with your specific laptop model:
