Ram=RAMDOM Access Memory, example your memory ram stick/s when you turn off or reset your PC everything stored there will be lose because it only keep temporal information while is on.

Rom= READ Only Memory, example your Hard Drive, here is where you store all your info for a later use if you want and once stored the PC can be shut down and you still will have everything if you saved it when you turn back on your PC.
