Hello, my computer froze this morning. So you unplugged it, and tried to turn it on again. And it said No Boot Device Available. So I turned on RAID, then it went to detecting array and halted. I tried to restart it, but it said starting setup but it doesn't go to setup and skips to detecting array again. What's wrong with it, did I break it?

Do you actually have a RAID array? If not, there is nothing to detect, and if you do find a couple of your HDDs and initialize an array on them you will lose whatever information was on them.

Often, the "no boot device available" message just means that your boot drive MBR (master boot record) is corrupted and could possibly be repaired with just a system repair disk.
