Is my PIC faulty?

    If I load a program into my PIC (16f876a) and then read it back or verify it, the first 8 locations have the wrong data. I've noticed the last 8 locations in memory also are usually wrong.

    The rest of the program reads back fine and is identical to what was loaded.

    I have tried using a clock delay when loading the PIC but it makes no difference.

    I'm wondering if the PIC is faulty as everything else seems to be working fine?
