Anyway of testing if a motherboard is working fully without using ram or
a processor? I know it sounds daft but is there some sort of device etc
that moinitors everything? Reason I ask is I have two old boards but no
parts that fit them. Short of buying bits and testing them i would like
to know if they can be used. Wondered if there was some type of special
device that could be useful in future etc.

This may be a stupid question but . . . if they are old boards that you do
not have the bits to test them with, why would you care whether they work or
not? They are worth NOTHING on ebay (alone, that is), and the bits needed
to build a system with them would probably add up to more than the cost of
an entire new system. -Dave

No there isn't.

Nothing I know of. Borrow parts if possible, it isn't really worth the
risk to buy parts just to test them.

Or maybe less than nothing, not worth trying to give away.
