T440s, Windows 10 and WiDi

Q: T440s, Windows 10 and WiDi

Hello I've got T440s (20AQ004URT) and I want to connect it to my Sony Bravia TV (Miracast certified) wirelessly.I've made clean Windows 10 installation. At this point WiDi connection works 8 times out of 10. Then, Windows automatically installs necessary drivers (for touchpad, graphics, etc.). At this point I could hardly get WiDi working, it starts to connect to my TV and then just fails. So, I went to Intel forum and found out that I should install latest drivers from Intel (graphics, networking and Intel WiDi Pro software). I have installed all that stuff, but nothing changed. My hardware seems to be compatible with Intel WiDi Pro, as I could install necessary software. Also, my antivirus/firewall is disabled. But I still can't get WiDi working - laptop sees my TV, it starts to connect, my TV shows connection, but then it fails. Please, help me resolve this issue.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,
I'm having big problems getting WiDi to work with my Asus N56vz notebook and Toshiba TV. It's been to Asus twice and had new wireless card fitted. Scans and recognises the adapter on my TV but wont connect. Also jumps off connection when viewing files on home network, and sometimes fails to recognise devices. As far as I can tell I've installed, re-installed all latest software and driver releases. Any ideas anyone before I have to very inconveniently send it off for a THIRD time please?!

I bought a P40 and all the support offered at the time of purchase.I called support, they created a hardware ticket 402FK7Q, then said it was a software problem.I called software, they took 10 minutes creating support ticket 1608S110898, then got around to telling me that my support didn't cover software, and tried to upsell me on more $$ warranties. Intel has decommissioned Intel Widi driver.  http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/widi-pro-widi-discontinued-notice... Microsoft removed it from Windows 10 and issued an update which causes annoying "Intel Widi has been removed" message at every startup. Lenovo has not caught up with this change. Based on this experience, I will not recommend Lenovo laptops to other customers.

Hi,
Does anyone know where i can find a working driver to get my WIDI working on my L321x in windows 10.

The existing dell drivers don't work very well, the screen frequently distorts,  maybe once an hour for 10-30 seconds and sometimes needs to be put to sleep and turned back on to correct it. 

When i try and install the WIDI utility from intel, it states that no devices are found.

Ok, I have a Toshiba Z835-P330 ultrabook with a 2nd Gen i3. I know most computers with the i3 are not WIDI capable, however, mine is. I can easily use WIDI when im running windows 7. When I switch to windows 8 however, WIDI isn't even available and it looks like the program/drivers are missing.

In what order do I download WIDI drivers and Software from Intel? I have had issues with WIDI before in win8 release preview, so instead of stumbling through it again, I'd like to get someone else's take. Any input/help is appreciated. Thanks!

IIRC, the The 1x1 adapter isn't an Intel adapter (it's a Realtek), so you can't use WiDi/Miracast directly. You'll need a USB dongle or replace it with a Lenovo branded Intel card from the T430 generation (I believe they were the 6100 or 6300).

i've got a T440s that was upgraded to windows 10 about 6 months ago. after installing a new brother printer yesterday, the machine won't boot any more; it just goes directly to automatic repair, then diagnostics, neither of which help. i tried several system restore points, but sr always fails telling me it can't copy the registry. i ran the lenovo hardware diagnostics which fails in the targeted read test of the hard drive with bad sectors. i am backing up all the data (which is on the solid-state drive ?) manually from the cli prompt (that still works) before i do anything else. next planned step is to run the bad sectors tool). i'm wondering if the bad sectors are where the registry (or its backup) is stored, and if so, then will "fixing" the bad sectors destroy the registry to the point where i need to do a refresh. this is the first time i've dealt with a system with a hybrid drive (ssd for start-up & os, hd for storage. since it was originally a windows 8.1 machine will running the refresh put back windows 10, and if so, will it know where to write the refreshed os files to the ssd and hd? all suggestions appreciated.

Upgrading from Windows 8.1 (touch working) to Windows 10 I lost touch functionality. I've tried replacing the LCD myself after cracking the first one just to verify the ribbons were connected behind the LCD assembly (factory tape/glue is holding them down). I haven't tried ordering the Windows 8.1 Restore CDs and rolling back. I can confirm it's not a hardware issue. I'm guessing it's firmware related. Similar to the Yoga touch problems Lenovo's been having and those users upgrading to Windows 10. Checking the forums it looks like updates have been hit or miss. I've tried downloading Windows Tab Installer Package, the Yoga LCD Firmware Updates (unable to pass hidident.exe to update), downloading the SCCM package and looking for any type of installer and none's available. Leaning towards a firmware incompatibility. Can anyone at Lenovo confirm this for me? I can understand the 20AQ had a limited run compared to 20AR (non touch) and the Yoga Series. Still it'd be nice to have someone confirm. It's a shame the laptop is only a few years old. If there's a beta firmware package for the touch digitizer I'd be happy to try. Intermittent response would be better than none. Thanks all,

I am trying to encrypt my drive using BitLocker. I am saving the key to a USB drive, only encrypting used data, and using new encryption mode. I then run system check before encrypting the drive, and when I restart my computer, I get the following message: "BitLocker could not be enabled. The BitLocker encryption key cannot be obtained from the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). C: was not encrypted."I've done some troubleshooting elsewhere, but can't find any info to help me. I'm running Windows 10 Pro on a Lenovo T440s machine. My TPM is initialized, owned and running, so I'm not sure what to do there. Here are images of my TPM from Device Manager.I'm at a loss, and I definitely need to be able to encrypt my drive. Does anyone have any information? If you need more information about my system, BIOS, etc., I'll be happy to oblige. Thank you.  

A:Unable to encrypt drive using BitLocker on T440s running Windows 10

My guess is that you deployed Win10 in legacy mode, instead of UEFI mode.  You can confirm this in msinfo32.exe, look for "BIOS Mode" in the right-hand panel.  It needs to be "UEFI" if you want to use TPM 2.0.

I have performed a battery reset in the battery management section of the power manager, but nothing changed.When the display brightness is set to 0, the screen is actually still on (not so bright) but still on, and it's a way too much for me if I use my t440s during the night time.

I'm not familiar with SmartShare and I can't find a User Manual online. From the basic description, smartshare will access content that you have shared in your "Smart Cloud".

IF the TV can browse the network for content, then you can simply share content on your PC. The TV will then open/play whatever content is supported. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/enable-file-and-printer-sharing

Otherwise, you can simply connect you computer to the TV via HDMI as a second monitor. The TV will then display whatever is done on the computer.

Your options will depend on what exactly is supported by the TV.

Intel WiDi stands for "Intel Wireless Display" and is a technology used to drive wireless communications between a PC and a display screen of some kind (sometimes a monitor with wireless capabilities, sometimes a TV set with ditto). Here's some explanation of the technology: Downloads for Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi). What's interesting, however, is this: Intel® WiDi and Intel® Pro WiDi Applications Discontinued Notice.
What you are experiencing is the result of a failed attempt to load a WiDi driver on your system and (I believe) a reflection of the discontinued notice. Since you probably didn't need to use this anyway, it really doesn't signify for your system. And while it's possible that slow operation of your system is related to some kind of device driver or another because WiDi is not actually in use on your system, this is highly unlikely to be the cause.
What you might consider doing is visiting the HP support page for your laptop, and seeing if you can find updates for any of your other drivers. Alternatively, you can work your way through Device Manager, right clicking on individual drivers, and selecting "Update Drive Software ..." from the resulting pop-up menu. Or (there are many, many ways to address potenitial driver issues) download the Windows Update Minitool and use its driver check abilities to identify, download and install any outdated drivers in one go.

hi

I'm having a problem with the WiDi on the P50-C notebook.

I've tried it previously to connect to a Miracast tv and it wasn't having any of it. I did a bit of research and found a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter which I bought. However I can't connect to this either, even though I have ran the Intel compatability checker and it came back fine.

The notebook will find the adapter without any issue, but it will not connect for love nor money. I've tried all afternoon switching and updating drivers here there and everywhere but nothing will work. I don't think its a problem with the adapter which was brand new out the box, but fairly convinced its something up with the notebook.

Anyone else had similar problems and found a resolution?

Greetings, We are trying to get WIDI to work with one of our Lenovo T430s. Its is running a i7 3520M with Intel HD Graphics 400 and 64bit Windows 7.When trying to install the Software it says the Plattform is not compatible. It used to work on this very Laptop before we did a clean install and all of our other Laptops (with the same specs)  have no problems with WIDI.  Can someone provide some help as to what the issue might be here?

I bought  a reburbished T530 ThinkPad because it had an Intel i7-3520M processor in it and WiDi is supposed to work with that processor.  The system is Windows 7 just like my previous Dell laptop, which I dropped and distroyed.  My old Dell worked fine with WiDi, but the Lenovo T530 gets me the attached disgnostic, which tells me this platform is not compatible with WiDi.

How do you get WiDi working on this thing. I have 2 identical 9480m on my desk.   One still has factory load (Windows 7  Pro x64) on it and the WiDi works flawlessley. One has my base Windows 7 Enterprise x64 image on it.  Initially using the HP Driver Pack (v1.02A), I have upgrade both the Wireless to lateset Intel Wireless (v17.10) and and Video to the current HP Intel Driver for the model (10.18.10.3958 A) I run the WiDi installation software (4.2.29.0) and it continually tells me the hardware is not supported.  WHAT ELSE DO I NEED????
