    By "tabs", are you referring to the retention clips which engage in the notch on the RAM board to anchor it down? You could possibly cannibalise some from an old motherboard, but I do not know if you can realistically remove and refit these. (or, if a donner will necessarily fit another manufacturer's socket.)

    I would be tempted to see if a couple of cable ties could replace the failed retention clip.
