Could it be the wrong NVRAM type in there ? Maybe the old one died and 
they tried to stick one from another box in there that isnt exactly the 
same part.

I have a SS10 with a NVRAM from something else in it. While it keeps the 
time and info it generates an error in diags about result not expected 
or such. I forget now but, it was something like that.
