How to stream your Laptop, PC to your TV wirelessly for FREE! (no adaptors needed)
Sometimes it’s really usefull to stream media on your laptop or PC to a bigger screen such as your TV. Well you can actually do this for FREE without having to buy any of the latest TV adaptors, dongles such as Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV stick. All you need is a smart TV and Windows 8.1 and 10 operating system. Wndows 7 and 8 will also work but will need updating to the latest Miracast drivers. See links at bottom of page on how to do this.
My video guide below which will show you how to stream your laptop to your smart TV in less than 5 minutes.
If this method does not work for you please read these 3 possible solutions below:
Solution 1 – I am using Windows 7 or 8 but this method won’t work
Window 7 and 8 do not come with the drivers built in to support the Miracast wireless display technology. If you want this to work on Windows 7 or 8 please read the discussion on this subject on the Microsoft forum and download and install the drivers below:
Solution 2 – I am using Windows 8.1 or higher but this method still won’t work
If your PC, laptop or Mac does not have the hardware to support wireless streaming then you can buy a USB dongle to provide the solution. See link below:
Current price from Amazon is £12.99
Solution 3 – My TV is not a Smart TV
If you don’t have a Smart TV then not all is lost. You can still buy a microsoft wireless display adaptor to upgrade your old TV to support the wireless transmission Miracast technology. See link below:
