DDR3 compatibility

Hi, I have HP HDX X18T-1200 CTO laptop, mobo had few problems so I bought another one, upgraded the processor also, and everything is working fine. When I checked online, several sites claims that the mobo I have which is 519592-001 can work with DDR3 8GB (4GB x2), so I bought them (4GB x2 DDRIII 1066MHZ), and I was disappointed that my laptop didn't work, I checked the memory on IBM X200, and both are working fine, (the X200 maximum is 6GB, so I tested each one alone), now I need to know if the memory I bought is really compatible with my HP or not.

Many thanks in advance.

Not sure where you read that you can use DDR3 memory but that is no correct. Your laptop only supports DDR2.

Many thanks mate, guess I've been deceived, so I'll just return the memory and replace it with DDRII-PC2 6400.

Cheers
