mouse is in a usb port, have tried moving the printer cable, to another usb on machine, but still same result

drivers have you tried downloading the latest
drivers from lexmark.

or checking with microsoft for anyone else who has had the same trouble.

If the lexmark z601 was designed for XP, it may not function on such an early USB Port.

If I remember rightly the first incarnation of USB was superseded quite quickly.
