All motherboards incorporate a little square of Read Only Memory (ROM) which is separate from the fundamental framework memory utilized for stacking and running programming. At the point when a PC close down legitimately, all information situated in RAM is returned back to lasting stockpiling on the hard drive or blaze drive.

An extension transport is an info/yield pathway from the CPU to fringe gadgets and it is commonly comprised of a progression of openings on the motherboard. You can also find more information about the motherboard here: Compaq Support Number
