Rom stands for read only memory. It cansists of those instructions that prepare the computer for use. Rom instructions are automatically loaded into the main memory. These instructions cab only be read but cannot be changed or deleted. It is not possible to write new instructions into the Rom. It stores data and instructions permanently. When we swithch off the computer, the instructions stored in the Rom are not lost. Therefor it called a non_volatile memory.
