Bios corrupted and controller monitor initialisation failed on IBM X3400 server type 7975 what we should do


You need to figure out which BIOS is corrupted. If its the RAID controller BIOS your card may be bad if its the Motherboard BIOS you need to download a BIOS image & re flash it. If your card is dead it is IMPORTANT you need to get an EXACT replacement to be able to retain your data on your RAID.

SERVER IBM SYSTEM X3400: "CONTROLLER MONITOR


Hi,

Welcome to fixya

This error can come if there is any issue on Raid controller

Most probably , dust will be the enemy.

Just re-fix the raid controller and check. ( Power off the server while doing this job)

After re-fix check if it works . If it doesn't then it's time to replace the controller.

Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya
The problem is with the raid controller . Either the controller is faulty or it is due to dust or happen some shake. To rectify this issue do the following
1: Switch off the server 2: Remove the Raid controller from the server and clean the dust . ( Please Don't touch with hand just blow air ) 3: Clean the Controller slot 4: Refix the Controller and power on the server . 5: Check whether the controller is booting or not . 6: If you gets same problem then replace the controller

Thanks

Ibmserver x3400 fatal error


Have you checked the IBM website for BIOS and any firmware to download and update for the controller? It can get to be a maze with server cards.
