Question

Is WiDi on Samsung Notebook Series 9 working?

by alexmichine@yahoo.com / January 21, 2013 4:37 PM PST

Dear All

Here is my problem

Laptop: Samsung Series 9, model 2012, Windows 7, 64bit Professional
Belkin ScreenCast, connected to Samsung TV via HDMI
Both Windows and Kaspersky Firewall are disabled

Software installed as following
http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/wireless-display


Intel® HD Graphics 4000
Current Driver Installed
9.17.10.2932

Wireless Networking (WiFi)
Product Detected
Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235
Current Driver Installed
15.3.1.0
Current Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility Installed
Intel® Wireless Display Software

Intel® Wireless Display Software
Current Software Installed
3.5.40.0

Intel® WiDi Widget Software

Intel® Widi Widget
Current Driver Installed
3.5.40.0
Your software is current.


Screen on TV shows "Ready to connect" message from Belkin
When I run Wireless WiDi, scan for available adapters : "No adapter is found" message remains.
When pressing "scanning for available adapters" - no change.
In fact, it doesn't look like there is a scan of any kind as "no available adapters" message is back there immediately after pressing Scanning button

Removed and re-installed all related Intel soft once - no effect.
Tried the same procedure with other Samsung TV - no effect as well.

My question: does anybody have WiDi working on Samsung Laptop Series 9 with latest Intel software?

Alex

That I've seen such work on laptops with WiDi "out of the box." It's not a sure a thing if folk update drivers or Intel software. If it's not working out of the box, you have a warranty issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
