I have recently bought a Miracast device for my TV and I want to stream some content from PC to TV.
In order to connect to with WiDi and Install the WiDi Drivers, I've read that I need Newer Driver for Intel HD Graphics.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, I have i7 4790K, I have currently GTX 1080 running as main graphic hooked up to 2 monitors, and Intel HD 4600 as (disabled so far) secondary.
I enabled that yesterday from the BIOS as IGD and there was option in BIOS to select what memory it shares... I selected 512MB - it was max option. (I don't know if all of this is relevant but I want to give u some info)
Now these are my concerns.
From my previous experience of 3-4 Laptops and PC's owned... usually when I right click on Desktop I have "Graphic Properties" that is coming from Intel in the menu. Now I don't. No idea why.
When I open Nvidia Control Panel.. and go over to Global Settings... I usually have "Prefered Graphic Processor" or something. Now I don't.
I tried EVERYTHING to update the driver.. with the newest win64_153631.4414, older win64_153628.4332 drivers.. and it won't upgrade from 10.18.14.4414 no matter what I do.
This is what I tried so far:
1. I have tried "Upgrade Driver" from the Device manager, extracted the Zip, pointed "Have Disk" location... and it's saying "Your Drivers are Up to Date" while clearly they are not.
2. I have made Clean Boot with everything except windows services running, Uninstalled the drivers + Software completely, restarted. I got the Message "Sorry Windows couldn't install this device - No driver Found". I right clicked in Device Manager, found the drivers, installed them .. and I still got 10.18.14.4414 version even tho the zip downloaded, contains the Newest Drivers only. Tried with Newest and with Older. Still same.
3. I went to System32... gave myself Owner Permissions... deleted from Driver Repository the IGN folders... uninstalled again together with software... restarted to Clean Boot... reinstalled again.. no luck.
4. I downloaded the Intel Driver Update utility. It shows that I have installed Version "10.18.14.4414" and that Newest is 153631.4414 ... I press Download / Install.. it won't change them, even after screen blinking, restart done, etc.
I've spent over 20 hours troubleshooting before I ask help from you... but I am kinda desperate.. I don't want 70Euros to go down the drain because I can't install drivers for the HD 4600.
Another quick question:
In order to install the Widi what other drivers I need to check for updating? Intel Chipset, Intel HD Graphics, ... ?
Since I am doing YouTube / Live Streaming for Living, and this is quite urgent matter for me, to make everything functional, I appreciate all of your help.
Thank you Very Very Much, for your support, in advance.
