touchpad for several seconds on starting up Windows, after that it does
nothing. So I think it isn't broken, but why does it stop working in XP.
And why doesn't it even start working in the beginning in Linux?

Windows works for a few seconds, but that is still faulty) if it is
software related. Is it a Synaptics Touchpad? If so, maybe try their
website and get the latest driver. Although make sure you have a copy of
