    Reboot your system and enter BIOS. Set BIOS to "default".
    Start again and go here:
    ASRock > Products > Motherboard > G31M-S > Download
    Get the latest 1.90 BIOS for your mainboard. Choose the BIOS with the Windows flash tool and read the "How to update" (red cross).
    If your DVD is still missing, go to System > Device Manager and uninstall your optical drive. Windows will reinstall it at next start.

    Second from the top is the file, you can flash out of Windows. Read the "How to update" instructions, which will open, if you click the red cross symbol.

    When you have flashed the BIOS successfully, the BIOS settings are on "default" as standard.
    My impression is that your system maybe got infected from a virus or malware. Try a online scan here:
    Download Free Online Virus Scanner | BitDefender
    Works only with Microsoft's Internet Explorer
    or try this:
