The first time I generated the Nosymm structure file was by using the 76 
posiciones generated by a first symmetric scf calculation (no coordinate 
optimization), so the same coordinates where used in both cases.


To be sure, I run again the Nosymm structure file but accepted the new 
structfile suggested by the SGROUP program, which detected the corrected 
symmetry and this gave the energy I just mentioned here, so in principle they 
are equivalent.


Would you like me to send you the case.struct files with the specifications I 
gave with init_lapw?

No. This is a huge E-difference which must come from something very 
severe. Did you compare the distances in the 2 case.outputnn file or 
compare the structures in xcrysden.
