"Looking for the best ROM for your PC or laptop?" Or which type of ROM is popular in the latest version of the laptop and PC. First, we need to understand "What is ROM?" and What are its uses?
In this blog, we will help those people who are in search of the best version of ROM for their laptops and computer. In this blog, we will try to solve all questions related to" Selecting the best version of ROM(Read-only memory) for your laptop or PC."
Those who use laptops or computers ever think about "What is Memory"? And what type of work does a Memory chip perform on your PC or laptop? So, First of all, we need to understand the concept of MEMORY in PC and laptops.
• Primary Memory
• Secondary Memory
Primary memory is directly linked to the CPU. RAM and ROM are the kinds two kinds of this memory.
Secondary memory is directly linked to the processor. It transfers the file from itself to primary memory.
The two kinds of primary memory are-
1. RAM ( Random access memory)
2. ROM (Read-Only Memory)
• RAM stands for random access memory. It contains or stores data temporarily on the laptop or PC. It is volatile.
• ROM stands for read-only memory. It is a type of acronym. It contains or stores permanent and semi-permanent data in the form of a small memory chip. It is non-volatile. ROM works like a permanent memory container on a PC or Laptop. ROM is one of the most important parts of a computer or laptop.
Type of Read-only memory (ROM).
-PROM stands for (Programmable read-only memory). It is a type of memory that can be programmed by the user. But the data which will be stored cannot be changed further.
-EPROM stands for (Erasable Programmable read-only memory). It is a type of memory that can be reprogrammed by the user to change and delete the data which was stored previously on the laptop or PC.
-EEPROM stands for (Electrically erasable programmable read-only memory). It is a type of memory that can be deleted or erased by applying some electric field on the portion of memory chips.
-MROM stands for (Masked read-only memory). It is a type of memory that can be programmed and stored by the time of manufacturing.
• ADVANTAGES OF ROM (READ-ONLY MEMORY):-
These are the following advantages of ROM in a laptop or PC:-
• It doesn't lose data in the case of the laptop being switched off or shut down.
• It is comparatively fast than RAM (RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY ).
• It is cheaper than RAM.
• Data can exist permanently and none erasable in ROM.
• Data stored in binary pattern.
• It is used in USB flash drives, MP3, and many other electronic devices.
• DISADVANTAGES OF ROM
• ROM is capable of reading data only.
• Once the information and data are stored the data cannot be changed.
We have all the detailed information about the ROM as mentioned above. But do you know what is the latest ROM used in the latest laptop? Here is the answer.
The position of the ROM is located on the motherboard of a computer system. ROM proceeds with its functions with the saved instructions that have to be followed by the computer and laptop after "turn on". There is some basic coding for computers and laptops to complete the procedure of their starting. This basic coding is known as firmware. The other name for the BIOS system is firmware. BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output system of a computer system. In the latest laptops or PCs, the position of the ROM is on the BIOS chip. But BIOS chip is also directly attached to the motherboard.
CD ROM stands for compact disc read-only memory. It is also another type of ROM which is not able to change. Data remain the same as we feed in this CD ROM. In the latest version of the laptop, ROM is attached to the BIOS chip.
In the boot process of the laptop, ROM plays an important role. On turning or powering on the laptop, you always heard an odd sound from your laptop or PC.Do you ever think why it only comes when we power on the laptop or PC? This is because the BIOS chip activation which enables the CPU to start and the ROM directly comes into the process. This format of activating each other leads to a better performance of a laptop or PC. So, the types of ROM such as PROM, EPROM, EEPROM, MROM, and CD ROM are used in the latest laptop.
