HP laptop Touchpad continuously randomly stops working and only works again when redownloading bios

HP Pavilion x360 convertible 14 inch
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently purchased a HP pavilion x360 convertible laptop. Within a week of having it my touchpad stopped working randomly one day and so I called HP for support. Whilst on the phone they had me uninstall the touchpad driver and bios and then redownload them both. My touchpad then started working again. However, ever since my touchpad will continuously just randomly stop working and the only way to get it to work again is by going to my downloads folder and redownloading bios every time. When my touchpad stops working and I go to device manager and go to mice and other pointing devices there is no mouse plugged in and its not an option so I know its not mistakingly connecting the mouse. The synaptics precision touchpad filter driver states 'currently this hardware device is not connected to the device' and even clicking update driver wont work. 


Is there a way to make it so my touchpad wont continuously stop working every second day?
