Memory When the computer is working all the programs and data that it is using are stored in memory. The computer has two different types of memory. RAM and ROM Random Access Memory This kind of memory can be read from and written to. The computer uses RAM to store programs and data that it has loaded from backing storage or received from an input device. RAM stores data for as long as the computer is switched on. When the computer is switched off, all the data in RAM is lost. This is why we use backing storage to keep programs and data when they are not being used. Read Only Memory The computer can only read this kind of memory The computer cannot put any data into ROM The computer uses ROM as a library where it can find important programs and data. These programs and data are built into the ROM chip when it is made.
