I have no insights to offer except that I have occasionally had 
the same problem on a Dell Inspiron 8200.  At first I thought 
the problem was related to running two monitors (laptop + 
external), but on rare occasions it has happened just on the 
laptop.  I don't use Office XP so that does not seem to be the 
problem.  For me it only occurs about once every two months 
so I have just rebooted and ignored the problem.
