It's the BIOS, you get the message from.
Under normal conditions, when the amount of RAM has been changed, you get the message, enter the BIOS, save the settings and reboot the computer.
That's it.

The BIOS uses the CMOS, to store the settings you configured in BIOS.
You can't access the CMOS directly, except, you are a programer and know, where the peek and poke values, to make the changes, that are normally done via BIOS.

The CMOS is the portion of the BIOS chip that has values that can be changed. The BIOS portion can only be changed by flashing a different BIOS version. The two terms are frequently used interchangeably.

So, you are in the right place and just don't know it. What are you trying to do?

In the book I am studying, it states that if I Increase the amount of ram on my PC that CMOS may report a memory size error, and give me the opportunity to save the new changes to CMOS. When I open the setup screen is the CMOS each item on the screen, and would the change in the amount of ram be shown there giving me the choice to save the change?
