Seeing your laptop specs., The 5300 module would be recommended.
Check for compatibility before buying.

Second - when installing memory upgrades in a factory built computer, it is always advisable to open the case and remove one memory module and see what the specifications on the label report. If the current module is PC2-5300, then you know that wil function properly. If you put a faster speed module, the best you can expect is no increase in speed. Many times it will actually revert to even a slower speed because of the system mis-match and may even just refuse to boot.
Check the technical support web page for your machine. It will state if it accepts a range of memory speeds or just the one.
