A couple of days ago, I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a Dell I7352-3111SLV 13 inch touchscreen laptop. Initially, the touchpad worked fine. The first time I suspended, the touchpad stopped working, even with a reboot. I've since reinstalled Ubuntu a couple of times to try to solve the problem without success. The latest time, the touchpad didn't work even with a fresh install.
I have tried several fixes without success including:
Since the computer is also not resuming even half the time from Suspend, I enabled hibernate. The odd thing is that coming off a hibernate/resume, the touchpad functions again properly each time. However, when I reboot, the touchpad is non-functioning again until I hibernate.
Even when the touchpad does not work, it is still detected.

I'm fairly new to Linux and I would appreciate any suggestions. Maybe there are log files that could be used to compare what is happening with the touchpad on a reboot as opposed to resuming from hibernate?
