I have about 200 bad PC rams

    I used to repair PCs and over the years I have collected about more than 150 bad rams(PC memory) from other people's systems.
    I need to know is there any way to repair them or somehow sell them for anything?? Can they be used some where??

    Are you 100% sure every stick is defective? If not I would suggest adding each one into a pc to test. If they work and are 512 ram + you might be able to sell them on sites like craigslist for $10-20.

    I am 100% sure none of them is working. I have checked them many times. They are faulty and I want to get rid of them.

    You can just contact the manufacturing company of the RAM to just take them away.....or ...you can use them as a key chain.....or use them as a decorative items for your house....

    I think you can't make any money out of it, if you can find someone who is interested in collecting electronic components or Computer parts give them as a gift or in exchange of money or something.
    One person who is interested in collecting old computers in DP is Kerosene

    If you used to repair PCs you should already know the answer to your question. About the only thing you can do with them is properly dispose of them, unless you find someone who collects junk parts for whatever reason.

    see if any of them are still under warranty through the manufacturer. You might be able to turn them in for replacements of new ram. if that's the case, you'll either get new stuff back, or some really old/working, but valuable end of life stuff.

    if not under warranty, i'd suggest making some artistic mural on your wall - the ROI of getting them repaired is probably low

    option #3, google for people in the same boat as you, there might another answer

    I would say you should just post them on craigslist or something. Or put them in a box and sell them at a yardsale or something.

    Many of the RAM Cards are now comes with lifetime warranty. Check with the manufacturer if they can be replaced.

    If not sell them as scrap :p
