    I picked up a used copy of Pokemon Silver that wouldn't hold a save. You could save, turn the game off, and continue... if it was within 5 minutes or so. So I replaced the battery, and I still had the same error. What gives? Is it more than a battery issue?

    Does the battery have a charge?

    Personally sounds like either a bad battery or battery connection (most probable) or an resistor or diode on the board might be going bad(not as likely)
    I suggest you get a multimeter (and brush up on it's functions if you don't know them) and test the batteries voltage you want 3.0 Volts on the Voltage of the battery or better(of couse you probably won't get higher that 3.5 Volts as most 3Volt batters go no higher), if it's not that test the continuity between the diodes and resistors and even the battery because if it's not in there good and solid on the board it could easily loose connection even if only for a second and wipe out your S-RAM.

    Sounds like the metal tabs aren't making contact with the battery.
