  3. Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter connection issues

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, however I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.


    • Press Windows Logo + X.

    • Go to Device Manager on your Surface Pro 3.

    • Go to Display Adapters.

    • Search for Intel (HD) graphics driver.

    • Uninstall this graphics driver and reboot your Surface Pro 3.
    After reboot, an updated Intel (HD) graphics driver should be installed. And this driver might be capable to connect to Microsoft’s Wireless Display Adapter.
