Is it a clone minipro? I thought they just told you if something was up with the hardware, and they didnt mess you around but I dont know for sure as mine were genuine. Although there was a version that semi bricked them. For details have a read here (and around this post). https://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/eevb ... msg1713203 It looks like software version 6.8 was the nasty one. Hopefully thats not the one thats on your PC.

From what i can tell that was for the cs and a series programmers mines a tl866II which doesn’t seem to have the piracy issues and I went to the website for the programmers and it seems to be the same as a genuine I don’t get any messages saying it’s counterfiet

Yep, the IIs have not been cloned as far as Ive heard so thats not it. What about how the nvram IC is sitting in the chip holder on the PCB? Ive not heard of problems with those sockets, and actually only use the same expensive high quality ones on VL400s recommendations, but im trying to think what else it could be. Maybe gently lean on the chip in the nvram (to the side) and key on, to test for loose connections in the nvram to ecm or nvram to socket. Ive seen this on memcals with eeproms soldered directly in to them where heat has gone down the pin and melted the memcal plastic, but ive not seen it happen on an nvram. Running out of ideas of the top of my head.
