Laptop to 144hz monitor connection

Hello! I have a Lenovo Y7000 with a GeForce GTX 1650 with a Mini Displayport and HDMI ports. I also own an Benq XL2411 and with this monitor the HDMI cable is limited to 60hz although it has HDMI 2.0 so I can only get 144hz from the DVI connection, because the monitor is missing the Displayport connection. So my question is. How can I get 144hz, i tought about two options. I can either use a HDMI to DVI cable or a Mini Displayport to DVI, have you ever used any of those? Can I get some feedback before buying any cable? Thanks in advance!

You can't. It is a laptop


HDMI there is just for projection. Your laptop is not designed for 144Hz anyways (GTX 1650).

And usually HDMI bus is directly connected to laptop's shared Optimus bandwidth (which is controlled by your iGPU)

Main: AMD Ryzen 7 2700, Nvidia RTX 2070 Super, 16 GB 3200MHz CL15 DDR4, Windows 10 2009

Laptop: Intel Core i5 3230m, Nvidia NVS 5200m, 8 GB 1600MHz DDR3, MacOS 11 Big Sur OC

Secondary Laptop: Celeron 3205u, Nvidia 820m, 8 GB 1600MHz DDR3L, Brunch Chrome OS r86

Hmmm Laptop: Pentium M 1.6GHz, iGPU, 2 GB 800MHz DDR2, Windows 7 SP1

But when i run CS:GO at a very low res the monitor runs at 120hz trough HDMI, but at higher resolutions it doesn't. If the monitor had a Displayport it was very easy, because I have firends with the same laptop who have 144hz monitors and they are connected via a Mini Dp to Dp and it runs 144hz@1920x1080 smoothly. So I don't think this has to do with the laptop.
