Sideband Fabric Device Driver Disables USB Detection

Jump to solution
I currently have a Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 (windows version). It has a driver called Sideband Fabric Driver. It's a device driver that makes the touchscreen works and other essential drivers to work. If I install it, the touchscreen works and other things like battery icon, touchpad backlight charging status light, etc, but the USB flex cable that I bought and replaced for my broken USB flex cable doesn't work with it and it doesn't detect anything being plugged(no sound, no notif). If I uninstalled Intel Sideband Fabric Drivers, the USB flex cable can now detect devices


This is my status:
Sideband Fabric Driver is a driver that is essential for Mi Pad 2's touchscreen to work.
My Mi Pad 2's USB flex cable broke so I replaced it with a new non-original USB Flex Cable.
 
This is my problem:
Sideband Fabric is not compatible with the non-original USB Flex Cable. 
Uninstalling Sideband Fabric Device Driver makes my USB Flex Cable able to detect USB Devices but touchscreen won't work cause Sideband is uninstalled
 
Notes (possible insights):
booting the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 to safe mode is able to detect USB devices cause some drivers are disabled, but sideband fabric is not disabled (no caution sign in device manager, unless I'm reading it wrong).
