Hello,
ASrock Z68 Extreme Gen3
8gb DD3 Ram
AMD Rx 580 8gb
i2500k 3.3ghz (which I tried to overclock)
PSU 620W Antec EVO
Steps are below:
  1. I have recently been playing with my PC trying to get more life out of my 8 year old rig I have a i5 2500k and OC'd it to 4.2gHz fine! Then I made the mistake of pushing it to 4.4gHz.
  2. I then got sent to a error screen (couldn't boot up) and I needed to reset my CMOS which just did.
  3. I am stuck on the successful BIOS default screen but I can no longer use my keyboard to continue on.
Computers specs above and I have pictures if needed.
Thank you,
Nelson

Assuming your keyboard is USB?

Just speculating here, but if you cleared your CMOS, you reset your BIOS - so if the default (out of the box) BIOS had only partial USB initialization, you might be limited to certain ports.
Try using the rear IO ports, opposed to any front panel (if you are), and almost certainly a rear USB2.0 port, opposed to 3.0.
