When I try to connect my laptop to my Samsung smart TV via Miracast it usually takes a few tries to get it to work.
When it finally does work the TV screen freezes after a while and also Windows so i cannot click anything or even open the "start menu". Task manager does not help either, I end up having to log out of my account to unfreeze it.
I have checked the Miracast driver and its up to date.

Welcome to HP Community
I have gone through your Post and would like to help
I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...
HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook
Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.
Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.
Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.
Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.
Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.
Also ensure Windows is up to date.
Select the Start button, and then go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

Thank you for trying to help me! I downloaded the support assistant. I updated all drivers and also the windows updates.
Unfortunately it didn't fix the problem. it connects on the first try but it still freezes after a while.
Its strange because I never had these problems with my old laptop which was also HP but around 5-7 years old.

i have done ALL the updates. I had the problem before the updates and i still have the problem after all the updates.
Im sick of it, Probably gonna return the laptop. this is ridiculous. I know its no the most expensive laptop in the world but for 700$ I thought I would get a working laptop.
Also the fan is extremly loud and runs basically ALL the time even if I just have ONE page open in google chrome.
