Phenom II X4 965 Multiplier stays low

Hi, I've got a problem with my Phenom II X4 965. The multiplier won't go over x4.0, which is the minimum (802 MHz). I don't know why. When I turn on something like Overwatch it's unplayable. To be fair, yesterday I was trying something and upon unsealing the cooler attached to it, the CPU fell out as if it weren't even locked in the socket. I still don't know why. Unfortunately, I wasn't really expecting that and few pins were hurt. A little, nothing I wouldn't narrow myself. And I did, it looks perfect, nothing broke, everything works. It's not overheating either. It just won't overclock for higher performance. I tried resetting BIOS and also checked the power options.
