Update: Flipped Bits

Firstly, thanks to YoYo155, for asking his friend about flipped bits and Segmentation faults. If the flipped bit is occurring within the exact same register consistently, then it’s a problem with the CPU for sure, and less likely to be associated with the motherboard or PSU. If flipped bits are happening in different registers, then the problem is most likely to be associated with the ALU, which also means the CPU is at a fault.

The ALU stands for the Arithmetic and Logic Unit, and is used to perform arithmetic and other logic.
