    My combo works for me. Sounds like WiDi thinks you don't have all of the prerequisites installed.

    You might try uninstalling WiDi 3.5.40.0 and reinstalling, after you have the Graphics, WiFi, and Dashboard components installed (in that order).

    Also, you could try reverting to WiFi/Dashboard 15.2.0.19 and WiDi 3.0.13 (a.k.a. Win8 workaround set)...and you will have to reset the PTV2000 to 2.0.

    i ve installed, reinstalled, and formatted and reinstalled in all orders possible, also reset the ptv2000...no luck yet. i guess i wont have ptv2000 until a new driver comes out and test again. thanks.

    Sorry to hear that.

    See this link for a workaround - maybe give it one last shot using that version of Intel WiDi (3.0.13). Or if you prefer, make a post on the Intel Support Communities or Intel WiDi-specific Community support site.

    Finally, I read that Intel WiDi only supports (fully) the 15.28 HD Graphics driver (version 9.17.10.2867) which is what works for me with 3.5.40.0.

    In case you didn't already find it, here is the new post by Intel employee rradi: Enabling Wireless Display (WiDi) on Windows 8 RTM

    Be sure to review the comments, especially his last posted update on Page 3 (or later)

    ...there is some advice on why WiFi 15.5.6 may or may not work for all cards, as well as a few DELL (L501?) users comments.

    Thanks alphastar, I had seen the post...if you read the last page you will see rradi mentioning that the current drivers do not work on the 6230. He says ". If you try to install v15.5.6 on a system that uses an Advanced-N 6230 card, WiDi will not work correctly!"
    I guess I just have to wait till the correct drivers are released. I have complained to Dell also, they say they are working on a solution.
    thanks.
