Do you know what went wrong?
Sounds like screensaver, but why it starts I have no idea. Sorry.

I have disabled dhcp from the setup page. I thought it is good security practice to disable functions such as dhcp if I don't use.

It needs to get IP address from your router, and it is listening only local network. That is why windows couldn't connect.
