    Have you tried clearing cmos via the jumper ...
    ... might try flashing-back to 3510 via USB Bios Flashback - & then flash to 3603 via EZ Flash 2 ...

    The re-setting of your bios settings back to default with the F5 key, should be done prior to the bios flash update ...

    Thank you both for your replay and help, it turns out that it was an issue with the DVD/CD driver, I had to fix it using this guide http://www.everything-microsoft.com/...ing-dvd-drive/ then I had to re-install some applications that uses the DVD/CD like itunes, nero,...

    thanks its back to normal now and I updated the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver to v 1.7 and no issues now .

    I have recently updated my bios and discovered that after that, my 2.6GHz i5 CPU was always running at 1.2GHz, at the lowest multiplier, x9.
    It seems that the bios update set some new limits to the CPU's frequency.

    My issue with low CPU frequency was SOLVED when I've DISABLED the "BD PROCHOT" feature using the software "ThrottleStop 6.0", as it seems my max processor temperature limits have been set very low by the bios update, so my processor was almost running at minimum to keep below those low temperature limits.

    BD PROCHOT = Bi-Directional Processor Hot
    Having this enabled means the your video card can mess and limit your processor's frequency (among other things).
