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.

Is this a good question?

Yes. I was thinking about reopening and reinstalling. The pen is super consistent since I partially removed the screen and cleaned the excess adhesive.

I suspect that you have installed it incorrectly, or some wires have not been properly connected, is it possible to open the screen again and check?

Messing with the driver won’t help, this is entirely hardware.
