Dell XPS M1530_ RAM for this?

I bought a used Dell XPS M1530 laptop. What's in it now:

Intel Core2 Duo T5750 @2.00 GHz
Ram 1.00 GB ddr2 I believe (has 2 slots)
Original Win Vista has been replaced by Win 7 64 bit

- Will Win 7 64 bit take advantage of 8 GB (2 x 4 GB)?

- original installed for Vista was DDR2; can I get DDR3?

- need the 4GB RAM stick part name

- an online retailer for it. If I'm not mistaken, Newegg.ca, Tigerdirect.ca do not stock it.

    there is no part number since Dell only offers up to 2GB sticks

    Your first link brings me to a Crucial error page. Could you try that one again, please? Or spell out product description so I can search. Thanks.

    edit: I Googled and got to the page that way. "8GB Kit (4GBx2), 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 memory module...$179". For some reason, that link doesn't work if copy/pasting.
