How to Chromecast Microsoft surface to a TV
As we dive deeper into what we have to discuss, let’s hope everyone reading this post is not left behind no matter what. On the Surface of your System, you will see a Network icon on the right side of the taskbar to select.
You will click on the network icon on the right-hand side of your taskbar and then navigate to select the Cast quick setting. You will be given a list of displays and adapters. Select the name of the wireless display or adapter you want to connect to.
But for those who prefer using cables instead of wireless connection, you will need to get a well-compatible Cable. Depending on the Surface you are using, you may need a USB-C or a Mini DisplayPort.
Why Won’t my Surface Pro Connect to My TV?
To cut a long story short, if your Surface Pro won’t connect to the TV wirelessly, I suggest you check your adapter firmware. As long as the adapter’s firmware is out of date, you won’t be able to connect your Surface Pro to your TV no matter how you try.
You need to always check the settings and firmware updates for the adapter to determine the real problem. Or better still, you can just install the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter app and then update it, don’t worry, I will help you out with that.
All you need to do is restart the adapter by disconnecting from your TV, restart the Surface Pro, and reconnect the adapter. You will see that your long Surface Pro error connection to your TV will just disappear for a long time.
If you happen to have been in this situation, try the solutions above to help resolve the issue in no time. So just take your time, go through this post carefully, apply what you see here in solving your case, and watch what happens next.

How Do I Cast my Microsoft Surface to my TV?
We have talked about connecting your streaming devices to Smart TV, but what if you don’t have a Smart TV? That aside, I will show you what to do but for now, let’s focus on how to cast your laptop to your TV first before anything else.
If you don’t have a smart TV, you can still connect your laptop to the TV, using an HDMI cable. Wireless connection is still possible with the help of a Wireless Display Adapter app that only needs updating for it to function the way you so want it to.
Almost all laptops that I have seen these days have an HDMI port, and HDMI cables can carry full HD video and surround audio to the TV. In the absence of an HDMI cable, I suggest you use the D-Sub cable, which also works very much as the almighty HDMI cable.
Can You Use Chromecast With a laptop?
Asking if you can use Chromecast with a laptop is what you seek an answer over, then your answer is Yes. You can use Chromecast with a laptop, and there is absolutely a lot you need to know about Chromecast and how it works.
You can use Chromecast to stream from your phone, tablet, or another mobile device, or you can connect from a laptop. Connecting your Chromecast to any of these devices, you will have to make usw of an installed Google Chrome browser before it works out.
Whatever you happen to be viewing on your computer screen or mobile device will automatically show on your TV. But one thing you need always be cautious of is that your WiFi connection should be from the same device, and be mindful of the internet speed.

Connect Surface Pro to Samsung TV
To be able to connect your Surface Pro to Samsung TV, you will need to check your set-up first and be sure all is in order. Are you using a laptop to set up your wireless display? If Yes, then I suggest you use Windows 10 when connecting.
Locate your Settings icon and navigate to Display. Select Connect to a wireless display. See the Samsung Smart LED TV as [TV] and the TV’s model number as one of the displays. You can set your connection.
As long as you follow the simple and short steps I pinpointed for you above, you can set up your Surface Pro to Samsung TV. I hope all is clear for you to make a try? You can drop your comment on what you think is still an issue for you so that I can help out.
