Using XP Error Checking

My computer has gone flakey so I tried the MS Error Checking for file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, ticking Repair for each box. After a couple of hours I got the message File System is Clean - does this mean there was nothing wrong and that there are no bad sectors, or would I get the same message if errors had been corrected and bad sectors locked out.

Nothing found

you would get message sectors repaired or marked bad.
