    Crucial's website says that my laptop doesnt support Dual Channel. But if I get a dual channel kit will it still work, just not in dual channel mode?

    Yes, the RAM will still work but only in Single Channel mode.

    Dual channel is a motherboard feature, not RAM.
    Manufacturers label RAM as dual channel just to guarantee that it's a matched pair.
