You mean 1600mhz as programs like CPU-z would identify or 1600mhz as rated speed? (DDR ram transfers data twice as much in a given time, hence the confusion).
What motherboard do you have? It may not support 3600mhz memory.

Try to enter the bios and reset the settings, just to make sure.
Your motherboard supports up to 2666mhz, or 3200mhz with OC (I assume this is the speed you were running initially).
When I turn on the pc it just show me a black screen on the monitor and on my keyboard I can't turn on the caps lock or the num lock

Try to change the output on the graphics card. If you cpu has integrated graphics, try to boot from the motherboard.
If that doesn't work, try to reseat the ram.

I initially thought that. I now understand that you're having problems getting an output. Hence, I that something happended with graphics, but now I realise it's unlikely.
That being said, it happened to me before that my computer won't boot, but a simple ram reseat to help. That, and the memory overclocking issue, is why I suggest this trick.

My bad, I didn't explained what i do.I entered the BIOS settings and I changed the memory frequency from 1600 mhz to 3600 mhz not the ram frequency
