I'm using an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T. At first I flashed the BIOS to the latest version in order to make use of all six cores, and it became really loud and the computer was fast as hell.
Weeks later I was on a game and my computer randomly restarted and then the CPU was way quieter than before and games started lagging even on the lowest settings, when it could run smoothly on the fullest before the computer crashed. I tried flashing my BIOS from USB again, but the cores didn't go loud and fast and now I can't find a way to get them back to normal. All six cores are still recognized in Device Manager. What can I do to get it back to full speed like before?

My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA770 UD3.

Let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

There are no recorded crashes, probably because I formatted my HD since the crash, sorry bout that.

Obviously your system reverted back to its default BIOS settings, this may have happened because the system (although quite fast) might have became unstable.

What happened in the initial flash was the system went into a freak turbo mode, you may have to go back into the BIOS and increase the settings and make a few changes.

Flashing the BIOS twice or six times will not give you those settings by default.
I may also have to add, the system may not be offering you that choice again by default, because it detected a system instability in doing so.
