Before it used to be under a minute and after my PSU unit went down it takes literally half an hour, but after that screen everything is fine. Could the PSU defect have corrupted the OS?

What are you system information's, i.e., specs ?

Did you install a new PSU unit ?

Anyone who may help you will probably need this information.

Jove is right, we will need to see your computer spec's. Also if you did replace the PSU I could use the model of the old one. It is possible that the psu caused damage to other objects.

A Big possibility is that the PSU caused blown capacitors on your motherboard, that is something to look for.

Here is what Blown Capacitors look like, check around the processor first, than everywhere else, very common around the processor.

Blown caps can cause alot of different things, slow down of all computer functions, lock-ups, and just a bad case all around, sadly if you do have blown caps, you will need a new motherboard.
