xorg mouse's area is too small...

Hi all -
I've got slackware 12 installed on a laptop (an Averatec 3150).

I've used Xorgsetup, but when I use xinit, everything starts and looks normal...

But the mouse is way off. The mouse pointer is in the upper left of where it actually clicks, by a good margin too. So if I move the mouse to the lower right hand corner, its really only 3/4 of the way down the screen, and 3/4 of the way over (from left to right). I can click everywhere on the screen, but the pointer is so off I can't tell exactly where it is clicking.

I hope someone out there knows whats up and can help...
Thanks all!
