Intel WiDi and Miracast

I have an HP Pavillion g6-2010nr Notebook PC .  It's came with Windows 7.  I want to use a wireless display adapter to wirelessly display (mirror) my laptop screen on TV.  It requires that my laptop be "Intel WiDi and Miracast" enabled. Is my laptop Intel WiDi and Miracast enabled? Do I have to install something? or can Windows 7 not do it? If Windows 7 can do it, how do I get it to connect? I know on Windows 8 there is a project option that allows you to connect to a TV, but I'm not sure where to find that option on Windows 7.  I am a newbie, so  the more details... the better.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

No. The following specs shows it does not meet WiDi requirements:

Re: Intel WiDi and Miracast

Thanks for the quick response! Is there a simple way to make my system WiDi enabled? Like buying some extra hardware?

Thanks

Hi,

 

Buy a new computer will be much better and can be cheaper.
