Which type of EPROM card is it? It could be a number of things...

a) The edge connector on the EPROM card is dirty or corroded
b) The internal EPROM itself has come to the end of its useful life or is corrupted
c) Damage to the internal pins on the Z88 which read the EPROM cards
d) You need to do a hard reset after inserting the EPROM.
