    Default Z87 EXTREME4 mobo BIOS p2.6 stuck at boot menu (no keyboard response)

    Ok TeakTown, first major issue with my new PC. I have an ASRock z87 EXTREME 4 mobo and I was updating the BIOS through the A-Tuning utility (mobo utility for Windows). The update downloaded and then my computer automatically restarted. The BIOS screen started up and then, it just stayed there. I waited 5 minutes, nothing. I tried hitting all the boot keys, DEL, F2, F11, etc. Only TAB worked to switch to the alternate BIOS screen. No keys worked at this screen either. I thought my keyboard may be broken, but I tried it in another computer and it worked perfectly. I then tried a new keyboard. Didn't work either. Nothing seems to work. I tried restarting, trying again, restarting...nothing works. Is there a way I can flash the BIOS without any key inputs? Will any of the data on my HDDs be affected? I already sent an email to ASRock, but I figured you guys may be faster.

    unplug your keyboard and plug it back in. (Haha easy huh?) Any chance its a steel series? Try grab an OLDDDD keyboard such as a regular oem microsoft v 1.0 / 2.0 usb.

    I tried unplugging and plugging back in. Did not work. I will try to find a OLDDD keyboard. My current one is one of those MS Ergo Keyboards. Luckily I do have some old keyboards at my father's place.

    ASRock has several Extreme 4 mother board models, so we have no idea which one you have. That means we don't know which BIOS update method was used by A-Tuning, which can be different for each board.
