    Widi not working after reimaging -- MyWifi software also different


      Hello forum,


      I recently had my Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop (Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Intel Centrino Wireless N-1030) reimaged b/c the hd failed. Prior to the failure, I had no issues using WiDi and the NetGear PVT1000 adapter.  So in the process of getting the laptop's drivers and software reinstalled, i now realize i didnt install the wifi drivers, hd graphics driver, WiDi software in the correct order....so, after removing and starting over several times, I am still not able to get WiDi working.  Several things stick out:

      1. When launching WiDi, I sometimes get "the application has an issue, please close and restart the app or consult Intel Widi Help" OR I get an error "No adapter connected"...even though the wifi is able to scan and find the netgear adapter.
      2. When WiDi is not thowing one those 2 errors, I can see Win 7 trying to identify the private network that being created.  For the times when it seems create a connection, the bytes received counter remains at 0
      3. When trying to connect, both the tv and laptop indicate an connection is in progress, but nothing ever happens.


      Also, needed to mention, I completely removed my security software and have disabled Windows firewall.  Also, I do have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M display adapter, which is also disabled.


      I am hoping this is not a lost cause....


      Thank for the assistance,
