Insprion 17R Windows 10 touch pad freezes and locks

Dell Inspiron 17R.  Touchpad freezes and then stops after boot up.  You can restart and it will work for a few minutes and lock up again.

Dell Recommended updating Bios which I have done.
Reinstalling the touchpad which I have done.

Anyone else have any recommendations.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First thing to do, is try to eliminate a software cause. Simply boot a windows setup usb stick and let it rest for half an hour or so and see if the touchpad still works.
