Dear HP,

You're very welcome.

 

Therein lies your problem.

 

The atheros wireless card is not widi capable.

 

Consult the 4530s service manual, Chapter 3 page 25 and get the Intel 6230 one if the country you live in is listed there.

The BIOS has a whitelist which prevents unsupported wlan cards from being installed, so you have to get the part listed in the service manual and it must have the HP part number on it or it will not work.

 

Check eBay and query by the part number.

 

Intel Centrino® Advanced-N 6230    HP part #  636672-001

 

As you can see from the link below, the above wlan card is widi capable and I have personally used this model card to project to my smart TV using windows 7.

That is your only option if you want to try and get your notebook to project wirelessly.

Hi:

 

This is a peer to peer forum.

 

HP maintains no official presence here.

 

What model wireless card does your notebook have?

 

The processor you posted and Intel HD 3000 graphics are widi capable according to this...

 

http://ark.intel.com/products/53469/Intel-Core-i7-2670QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_10-GHz

 

So, it is down to the wireless card.
