Mouse cursor disappears...

Just added a new DELL corded optical mouse, 2 button with scroll wheel. At random times, the mouse cursor will leave the field of display or "jump" off the screen--I then have to move the mouse randomly to "hunt" for the cursor which usually re-enters the display from the left or the top. What causes this and how can it be corrected? Thanks.
BTW I use XP Pro.

This used to happen with my wireless optical mouse as well, but stopped for some unknown reason.

1) Looking in settings for anything that might relate
2) Fresh batteries
3) Latest drivers
4) Contacting DELL (through phone/e-mail/forums)
