Cleaning the disk is a good thing - but are there any visible scratches in it?
chkdsk checks the file system on the hard disk - and not the disk itself. You can check the physical structure of the hard drive itself by downloading a bootable utility from the website of the hard drive manufacturer.
Another cause of this kind of issue could be a faulty CD/DVD drive - have you tried one of those lens cleaner thingies on it?
