Exclamation Assembly program

Hello Linux users.
I am into programming in NASM and i have a problem running program i have created. I have compiled and linked the files as it should be, yet there is no way i can open the final file i have made. When i go to the right directory by terminal and type ./TEST (which is name of the program file) it replies with: Segmentation fault (core dumped). Please help.
