  • Sorry,
    None of the solutions available on the internet worked. I got a new laptop and all casting was working fine. Then there was a series of windows updates which took a long time. After trying all possible suggestions available on the internet, and not fixing my issue, it looked like the windows update is the problem. Uninstalled all windows updates which happened recently. Everything works fine now.
