Hello,
i have to replace my broken mousepad ribbon cable on my Asus G751JY. I don't want to buy those pricey ones that are said to be explicitly made for this Laptop. Can I just buy a cheap OEM one, if the width, length, number of pins and the faces of the pin ends(cable lying flat on table -> one end shows the pin side, other end shows the plastic side) are the same as the original one?

Also, there is this small plate on the cable:

Is this copper for shielding or could this be a heat resistant tape?

I'm thankfull for any help to revive my beloved old Asus
