B. CMOS RAM

C. DIMM RAM

D. Solid State Disk

A

Answer: B. CMOS RAM

The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) RAM is an onboard, battery-powered semiconductor chip inside computers that stores information. This information ranges from the system time and date to system hardware settings for your computer. The CMOS will lose the settings it is storing when the computer is shut down. However, the CMOS battery is used to provide constant power to the chip.
