If the error is detected it is written to the screen and the file results.txt. It can look like
[Sat Feb 18 13:09:01 2006]
Iteration: 1987584/16429141, ERROR: ROUND OFF (0.5) > 0.40
Continuing from last save file.
[Sat Feb 18 13:33:30 2006]
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.4999984205, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
But all errors are not detected.

If the computer crashed in a BSOD any error produced during the crash would hardly have had time to be written to the save files on disk, so you would be fine in that case. On the other hand the BSOD might indicate that your computer is not stable, so an undetected error might have occured earlier.

I would continue running a number of double-checks, and then see if they end up in lucas_v.txt (confirmed good) or hrf3.txt (either the first test or yours was bad). Links to status files can be found close to the bottom of this page.
