IBM Disc Electronics or Integrated Drive Electronics is more commonly known as ATA or Parallel ATA (PATA) and is a standard interface for IBM compatible hard drives.

Definition: RAM Disk is also known as RAM Drive. A RAM disk is not a disk at all; It is a program which takes the portion of the system memory (RAM, in the form of memory chips) and uses it as a disk drive. You can create a larger RAM disk, if your computer has more RAM.

A RAM disk can also take the form of a hardware device or a virtual disk. RAM drive makes use of regular RAM instead of accessing the data bus. Sometimes RAM drive also makes use of the compressed file system, so that compressed data can access but without decompressing the compressed data.

Definition: VRAM (pronounced "vee ram") stands for video random access memory or video RAM. It is a particular type of memory used on some video adapters to speed up the display of images on the screen. VRAM costs more than regular RAM (DRAM, dynamic RAM), but it does make the screen snappier. VRAM is the random access memory which is used to store the image and video data which is being displayed by the computer, or you can say that it will serve as a buffer between the CPU (Central Processing Unit) and video card.

The principle form of electronic MEMORY used in computers prior to the invention of semiconductor memory chips. It consisted of thousands of tiny rings called cores, made from a magnetic FERRITE material and each threaded onto three fine copper wires: the whole formed a two-dimensional mesh much like a knitted textile.

Secondary memory is also known as secondary storage. The secondary memory is accessed indirectly via input/output operations. This memory is also called permanent, external, stable or persistent memory. It is characterised by its slowness and cheapness, relative to the RAM, and by its permanent appearance.

Definition: ECC Memory stands for Error-Correcting Code Memory is a type of RAM that adds error detection and correction circuitry to automatically detect and correct single-bit memory errors in any of the chip. As the name of the memory suggests, ECC memory is a kind of memory that can identify and fix the most common data error, but it used for single-bit memory errors.

Understanding RAM on a PC gets pretty complicated, especially if you're using DOS instead of Windows. If your system is working okay already, don't bother with this information because it's pretty technical. But if you're running out of memory-if certain programs won't run or you can't create large files-you need some background knowledge before you march down and buy more memory. You may already have enough!

Fatal error!? Why do they do this to us? Why can't they just say, "Oh, excuse me, but your system has a serious problem. The trouble may just be temporary, and if you'll turn off the computer and try again, maybe everything will work fine."

Definition: EEPROM (pronounce as "E-E-PROM") stands for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. It is a non-volatile ROM chip which used for storing a small amount of data in computers or some other electronic devices. Through EEPROM, an individual byte of data can erase and reprogrammed entirety, not selectively by the electrical voltage.

In computer graphics, we used many terms like pixel, dot, resolution, sharpness, Quality of picture. All these terms are used during softcopy and hardcopy output. When we talk about softcopy output, we generally deal with pixels. Hardcopy output considers the term dots pitch for picture quality. Quality of printed media depends upon the distance of dots. Density means; how many dots are located under per inch area. Greater the DPI, more enhancement and focus on the quality of printed media.
