I would need help to find a way to connect my EliteBook to TV.I have tried with Intel Widi though seems the feature has been discontinued Windows 7. The machine doesn't not have the port to connect the HDMI port to directly connect...Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!.

Machine has one of the following wifi adapters/cards
Wireless LAN (WLAN) Via M.2 Minicard
- Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) WiFi and Bluetooth® 4.2 combo (vPro)
- Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) WiFi and Bluetooth® 4.2 combo (non-vPro)
- Intel® Wireless-AC 3165 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (1x1) WiFi and Bluetooth® 4.0 combo (non-vPro)
None of them supports wifi. You have few options
(a) Using HDMI: Your machine has DP 1.2 on the right hand side
A direct DP to HDMI cable will do the job because both use digital signals.
(b) Wireless: The following adapter (or similar) will work

there are 2 ways to connect to a TV
* use a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter (very inexpensive) and a HDMI cable
* Use Intel WiDi software (still available at HP for Windows 7/X64 - https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-elitebook-840-g3-notebook-pc/7815294), along with a Miracast adapter receiver connected to the TV HDMI port
Note: Windows 10 supports Wireless projection natively
