cursor position not the same as click position throughout installation

From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
The cursor moves as it should, but the actual control that is clicked is about
an inch and a half down and to the right of the cursor. Although the screen
bounds look normal the cursor cannot move to the bottom right of the screen,
but does not stop at the top left.
I did check the installation media (several times) and it passed every time. I
reinstalled several times to see if it was a fluke and the same bug repeats
everytime. I have not installed on a different machine (because I don't have
one readily available).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from installation media
2. Choose graphical mode
Actual Results: Same as above.
Expected Results: The mouse should behave normally.
Sony VAIO Notebook - Model# FX-220
Intel Pentium 3 Mobile
512 MB RAM
Intel 815EM Chipset (Intel 82815 Graphics Controller)
Generic Flat Panel LCD Screen (1024x768)
Installing using CD's burned from the iso images downloaded via ftp.
