Make sure the processor box is unchecked

ok so i have a question what to do next. i unchecked the box and restart computer. upon restarting it was slower then slow to boot. took like 25 mins to get to the main screen of windows. and never showed i was online and i really couldn't do anything. i got it restarted and i entered safe mode.. i was able to load windows fast that way . i pulled up msconfig and i could now see the 6 cores. when i rebooted it with the 6 cores, right after the screen it shows before it goes into windows.. the screen that says windows and has those swirling colors. It blue screens and restarts. i ran the windows fix things. doesn't work. keep blue screening. to fix it i started in safe mode went to msconfig selected 4cores again and rebooted. it booted up that time. So i am really lost to how to fix that. my bios are up to date. my mobo says it supports x6. I'm thinking i'm just going to move my music to gf laptop burn all my little progams i've downloaded to dvd and reformat. Any other suggestions?
