Unable to sign in- Disk I/O error. Tried everything



Today out of the blue I couldn't log in anymore, due to a "disk i/o error". So far I have tried (in this order):


1) Restart Skype

2) Restart Computer

3) Follow this guide to delete my skype user file https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10143/why-do-i-get-a-disk-i-o-error-when-i-try-to-sign-in-to-skyp...

4) Deleted my user (fresh made from failed login) AGAIN, then rebooted computer before opening skype

5) Deleting user, uninstalling skype

6) Deleting user, uninstalling skype, going into appdata/roaming and deleting entire skype folder

7) Cry and whine at my monitor


I'm out of ideas, what should I do?
