Types and sizes of memory
A computer uses two types of storage, ROM and RAM. ROM stands for read only memory and RAM stands for random access memory. ROM is memory that cannot be changed by a program or user and RAM is a fast temporary type of memory in which programs, applications and data are stored.
The mother board is a printed circuit board that is the foundation of a computer, located at the bottom of the computer case. It allocates power to the CPU, RAM and all other computer hard drive components. Most importantly, the motherboard allows hardware components to communicate with one another.
