Replaced Screen. Touch and Pen Problems
I dropped my Surface Pro 5. I ordered and received a new screen through Amazon. For a while, things were good, but then touch and pen functions started to deprecate. I did not drop it again, but I think I may have disturbed something when I replaced the not so protective but cute protective case with a more rugged (and expensive - worth it!) Urban Gear case.
I reopened it. I cleaned out some of the adhesive, mainly from the top where there is some copper (antenna?) This seemed to give me more consistent pen operation. I am thinking about removing and reinstalling the screen now that I know what to do. Maybe I will recover something that I missed on the first pass in the process.
I disabled the two HID touch screen entries in Device Manager, restarted, enabled, restarted. At first, I saw the little gray circles, but the screen cycled off and on a few times. They disappeared.
Do you think uninstalling the drivers will help or harm? I assume this would force Windows (11) to look for drivers again?
I hope it is not a faulty screen, since I am sure my return opportunity is gone.
