    Trouble connection to Microsoft display adapter


    Plugged the device in HDMI port and the connection screen appeared on the TV. On my laptop (win10) I went to connect and entered the PIN that appeared on TV. Very briefly the name of my laptop popped up on the TV and then the connection failed.


    I checked the firewall setting was public and private for wireless display in apps. I pressed the button on adapter to reset.


    So the question is the fact i do see a brief connection to my laptop does that indicate where the problem is as most posts people just get nothing?


    Thanks for any advice

    :)

    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.
