Is there something else in the methanol box? A protein, DNA? Methanol should not contain an improper term.
More importantly is the fact that your electrostatic term is huge for just a methanol box. That is what is driving the positive energy.

Subject: namd-l: VDW energy is negative but total energy is positive
Sir, i am new to NAMD and I'm using NAMD_2.9_Linux-x86_64-TCP/namd2. Sir, i have run the minimization of a methanol box (of dimension 60A: pdb file was generated using PACKMOL and the psf file using PSFGEN) for 50000 steps using NAMD. my output files show that VDW energy is negative where as the total energy is positive. Sir, i would like to know if there is some problem with my system.
I'm attaching the output of the 50000th step for your kind reference
