So I wanted to mirror my Phone screen via miracast on my Windows 10 Laptop. After installing the additional Windows Feature, it didn’t work. So let’s start troubleshooting!
After some Google magic, I assumed that Mobile Hotspot needs to work. But of course it didn’t.
I downloaded the newest Wifi driver from the Intel site, uninstalled the current Windows one and installed the new Intel. Well to be honest I changed between 4 different drivers on my system but the uninstall part seems to be important. Don’t forget to reboot. I don’t know if that is still needed but with an SSD who cares?
Now lets check netsh:
netsh wlan show drivers
The last line looks promising!
Unterstützte drahtlose Anzeige: Ja (Grafiktreiber: Ja, Wi-Fi-Treiber: Ja)
It still didn’t work, so I tried this trick from Andre for Directly: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/mobile-hotspot-no-longer-working-intel-ac-8260/eee92061-fefe-41e9-b9a7-ed94ad0d5a82
Press Windows key + X Click Device Manager Expand Network adapters Right click then uninstall all virtual adapters
Open Start then type: regedit Right click Regedit then click Run as administrator Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WlanSvc\Parameters\HostedNetworkSettings\ Delete the following key: HostedNetworkSettings
Restart then try again.
My hotspot worked again! 🙂
After disabling Mobile Hotspot and both phone and notebook on the same network, I could choose my notebook for miracast! I had to activate the PIN setting on the Laptop or id wouldn’t connect.
And now let’s be honest. It worked once, video has low quality. You would only use that for PowerPoint 😉
So I replaced my Wacom Bamboo with an Intuos Pen&Touch small. To be honest they are so similiar, the only thing that changed is the design and the name. The good news, you can use the newest Intuos Drivers!
First thing that annoyed me: „Paning“ with two fingers in Firefox triggers Left / Right Arrow keys much too fast! So I added more „amount“ to the AppGestures.xml. As I’m doing this, why not change the Zoom-amount from 1 to 5.
My old HP ProBook 4320s needed a working Windows 10 driver (4.4.234.00) for Hello.
This one works (install it manually): SP58869.exe from HP
Important note: If Windows installs an older driver before you do, the HP setup won’t replace it. So first uninstall the old one from the device manager (with the delete driver option) and install the INF manually
Now it should look like this!

To use a Synaptics ClickPad on Windows 10 on an old laptop (like HP ProBook 4320s), you need to install HP sp87170.exe or some other Synaptics Driver v 19.5… and activate this settings to scroll again:
So I tried to boost my CPU a bit with repasting and undervolting.
Cinebench R15 Loop (5 times)
Phobya NanoGrease Extreme (not enough)
Phobya NanoGrease Extreme (more than enough)
My configuration for ThrottleStop:
I’m not an expert but the only thing the i7-8550U really cares is CPU Core. I had it at -0.095 ish for some weeks and it was quite stable, but it did freeze when I started editing videos. So I gave it a little bit more juice…
