Is there a way to programmatically verify if RAM is functioning properly?
Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about finding where RAM is located in the MSX memory map, or actually verifying the function of RAM chips on an individual computer? If it's the latter, you could adapt existing memory-test software like Memtest86 for the job - it all basically comes down to writing filler patterns to memory and then reading them back.
