"Although the initial anomaly suggested that a memory module was degrading, the team now suspects that the root of the issue might be in the computer's central processing module or that unit's connection with interface hardware."

Does not sound very good.

The back-up computer hasn't been used or tested since installation. Please don't tell me that the back-up has the same type/model of CPU. Anyway, best of luck to the fix-it team.
