"causa fondamentale"


Explanation:
Hi Francesco,

I have only seen this expression used in English in the sense of referring to the main, basic cause or reason for the occurrence of something. Without additional context provided, I am unsure if here it has some further, unrelated computer context. If not, the above would be the translation: for example, "The computer is not working. The root cause is a malfunction in the hard drive." Good luck: Gary! :-)
