Is my laptop about to fail?

Windows 7 boots normally until the log-in screen.

After entering the password and hitting return, it loads for a few seconds, then goes to an all-black screen with the mouse cursor in the center.

The cursor works, but the desktop does not appear.

CTRL-ALT-DEL still brings up task manager, but there is no way to get the desktop to appear.

A reboot fixed it.  This has happened the last 2 times I've turned the laptop on.

Is it about to fail?
