PC Cast to TV used to work now immediately disconnects

I used to be able to cast my PC to my Samsung 8 Series (65) TV with no problem. In the past few months, something has changed. It says it connects to the TV the screen flashes black on the TV like its connecting and then it immediately disconnects.

Nothing has changed as far as the devices physically. I have the same TV and I have the same PC that I used to connect to it.

I have tried to power down both devices and try again but that has not worked.

The PC claims that it is connected but on the TV it is not. Since I was able to do it before, this tells me that somewhere an update has changed this process. Any help?

So sorry it took me so long to reply.  I appreciate you responding.  in the past I would “add a device”…. it would discover my TV, I would click on it, then on my TV it would say “connecting to Lori D”, and then it acts like it is connecting but it flashes and goes back to the TV screen, not showing the PC screen. To answer your questions from your reply,  The TV does not show up in the PC device manager. It also does not show up if you right click on a file and you cannot send it to the TV. In the past I have always had to remove the TV from the device list and go back through that process to get it to connect. I did this all the time. But now it disconnects immediately. It’s the same TV and it’s the same laptop, and it really makes me wonder if it has something to do with a software update. The TV has the latest software update. I am stumped.
