Winodws 10 PC screen is not projecting

Recommended Posts


For months now, I have been projecting sporting events from my Android 11 cellphone to my Windows 10 computer, because my PC has a bigger viewing screen. But for some reason, my PC has stopped projecting. I get the same message that I was getting previously that my PC is ready to connect wirelessly, but nothing happens. But when I press "Cast" on my phone, 3 or 4 devices show up on my phone that are not in my living space. How can I fix this?

Thank you.

There are several possible reasons why your Android phone may not be able to cast to your Windows 10 PC, and the following steps can help you troubleshoot the issue:

  • Make sure that your Android phone and Windows 10 PC are on the same Wi-Fi network. If they are not, you may not be able to connect wirelessly.
  • Check to see if your PC's firewall is blocking the connection. Try temporarily disabling your firewall to see if this resolves the issue. If it does, you can add an exception for your Android phone to the firewall settings to allow it to connect.
  • Make sure that your Windows 10 PC has the latest updates installed, as this can sometimes resolve connectivity issues.
  • Check your Android phone's Wi-Fi settings to ensure that it is connected to the correct network and that Wi-Fi is turned on.
  • Try resetting your Wi-Fi network settings on your Android phone by going to Settings > System > Reset options > Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth.
  • If none of the above steps work, try resetting your phone's network settings completely by going to Settings > System > Reset options > Reset network settings. This will erase all Wi-Fi passwords, VPN settings, and Bluetooth pairings, so make sure you have these saved somewhere before proceeding.

If these steps do not work, you may want to try using a different casting method, such as using a cable to connect your phone to your PC.
