comment Disk operations in windows 7 are slow
The disc where windows resides is borked. Luckily that disc and both it's partitions is just programs with no personal data (plus I got backup of the personal stuff). Now just a question to get a new disc. Thanks for the help. If you add your answer as an "real" answer I can give you a bit more credit @DaveRook :)

Seems like you where right. My first checks with SMART didn't tell me that anything was wrong. Using a livecd painted a different picture.

I have since I wrote my question reinstalled my installation. I will accept your answer though since I'm pretty certain that it would work. Even if it's a bit more heavy handed than I would have liked.

comment Computer shuts down straight away without getting to BIOS
Good suggestion. I tried some of them. Didn't bother with step 3 though. I would probably have gotten an informative beep code if it had been a problem with the cpu. It was hard to choose a solution to accept since both you and @music2myear had good suggestions. But I went with yours since it was a bit more detailed and you have a lower score than he and probably likes the points more ;)

I believe that it wasn't a normal beep code. It sounded a bit strange. I agree with your assessment though. Most likely the mobo, if it had been the cpu I would probably gotten a real beep code. Since the cpu is so old I'm not going to try and salvage it and instead invest in a new mobo and cpu.
