    Hi All
    First thread hope I am in right area.
    I repair pcs in my spare time and I was wondering is there a tool that one can attach to a pc through usb port that would tell me whether I have a good ram or not.

    thanks

    Go to pcsupport.about.com and search the site for their memory testing tools. Microsoft also has a couple. And if you google "RAM MEMORY TESTING" you should get many more.

    Thanks for reply bobthebear

    What I ment was that I have loads of ram sticks that I took of computers that had to go on the scrap heap. I thought that there might be a hardware tool rather than software tool to check them out.

    Thanks again

    Sounds like something you would have to build...

    Stand-alone ones exist, but are VERY expensive. Examples click here

    Otherwise just run a good RAM test program from a USB drive. Example Memtest-86 in this set of portable apps - google for more click here
