Z40-70 erratic touchpad

I've been going nuts with the Elan driven touchpad since I got this machine in Dec 2014. I've trouble shot the problem down to the Elan software being slowed down/interrupted when trying to use the mouse. The diagnosis is repeatable. If something is running using the CPU moderately at normal priority and the Elan software is also running at normal priority the touchpad becomes totally erratic. If under the same cpu conditions I plug in a wireless usb moue no problems, hardware driven. If I bump the Elan software to a high priority and start a moderate cpu process the touchpad work fine. My question is - is the a way to make the touchpad a hardware driven device rather than Elan software driven.
