I have several laptops with mothterboard failures that each had different types of RAM I would like to test for usability. My working laptop uses a different type of RAM and I don't want to swap it out just to test the cards, anyway. Doesn anyone know of a cheap device that fully tests out RAM sticks in lieu of putting them into a working computer? Thanks.

As long as the laptop can boot you can use Memtest86 to test the memory.
