- Are these RAM chips interchangeable?

No doubt a dumb newb question, but:
I have a broken Advent 5401 laptop containing 3GB RAM as follows:
"3GB DDR2 667MHz SODIMM (2 memory slots. Max 4GB)"
Now, I have just acquired a working HP 6710b laptop but with only 1GB RAM
"DDR2 SDRAM, 667-MHz, two slots supporting dual channel memory,
512/1024/2048-MB SODIMMs, up to 4096-MB total."
Assuming the 3G RAM chip(s) from the broken laptop are working OK, will
they suit the second laptop?
If so, is it just a matter of unplugging the chip(s) from the first machine
and plugging it into the second (as one would on a desktop PC) with no BIOS
changes or other configuration required?
