144 Hz Monitor not showing 144Hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I recently bought a new monitor (Dell S2719DGF) and the monitor is only displaying at 60 Hz even though the monitor is rated for 144 Hz through the HDMI 2.0 port. I am testing to see if the monitor can reach 144 Hz on my laptop (Lenovo Flex 5-1570), is the laptop preventing me from displaying 144 Hz or is there some settings I have to change.

Somewhere in display properties, you have to set it to 144hz.

I tried but it doesn't give me the option to for some reason.

While Dell can do 1440p144, that doesn't mean the port on your laptop necessarily can. If you cannot set a higher resolution/refresh rate in the system, it may be limited. Are you also using a high-speed HDMI cable (the monitor should have come with one, like my S2716DG did)?
