What is RAM (Random Access Memory)


In the world of computers, memory is a vital component that enables them to store and retrieve data. Random Access Memory, or RAM, is a type of memory that plays a crucial role in the functioning of a computer. In this webinar, we will explore the various aspects of RAM, including what it is, how it works, and how to install it into a computer.

RAM is a volatile memory that stores data that is being actively used by the computer. It is called “random access” because the computer can access any location in RAM without having to access other memory locations first. This makes RAM much faster than other types of storage, such as hard drives, which have to seek out the data they need.

RAM is an essential component of a computer because it allows the processor to quickly access the data it needs to perform tasks. The more RAM a computer has, the faster it can perform tasks, as it can store more data in its memory. RAM also allows the computer to run multiple programs at the same time, as each program can be stored in its own section of RAM.

In this webinar, our qualified mentor and tutor, Jerry, will discuss the different types of RAM, including DDR, DDR2, DDR3, and DDR4. He will also explain how to determine the type of RAM your computer requires, and how to install it into your computer.

Installing RAM into a computer is a relatively simple process, but it is important to take proper precautions to avoid damaging the components. Jerry will explain how to safely open your computer and locate the RAM slots, as well as how to insert and secure the RAM modules. He will also cover common issues that may arise during the installation process, such as compatibility issues and incorrect installation.

By the end of this webinar, you will have a comprehensive understanding of what RAM is, how it works, and how to install it into your computer. You will also have the opportunity to test your knowledge with a short quiz.
