Q: How to upgrade the 60hz Lenovo Leigion Y520 monitor to a 120hz monitor?

I am planning to upgrade the 60hz monitor to a better more responsive 120hz monitor but I am facing trouble deciding which monitor should I get to fit the Legion Y520 I searched around then found that Asus makes laptops with 120hz monitors with 30pin connector same like the connector on the Lenovo Leigion Y520 monitor. So can I get an Asus or AOU laptop gaming monitor and install it on my Lenovo Legion Y520? to get better refresh rate? please help with this ....

I've been looking into getting a new monitor i found 3 contenders while looking them up,
BenQ GL2760H 27" LED DVI HDMI Monitor,
Asus Vs278 27" Full HD LED Monitor

I then read many people saying 120hz or 144hz is so much better for gaming? as i will be playing lots of games like battlefield and cod it's made me rethink..but .i only have £180 tops to spend right now ... would it be worth waiting an extra two week to afford a 144hz? would it make a Big difference in games? i have no clue to even if my pc / Graphic card would be up to the job?

I've been running a multi-monitor setup for a while now, with an ASUS VG248QE 144Hz monitor as my main, and one or more spare monitors as secondary displays. I've set the ASUS monitor to 144Hz without issue in the past, while the other monitors stay at 60Hz.

The other night, Windows wanted to update. I figured it was the usual patch session, so I let it do its thing. However, after restarting my computer, I noticed that my ASUS monitor would only operate at 144Hz if it was the only monitor plugged into the system. When I try to set it higher in the Nvidia control panel, it just reverts back to 60Hz after applying changes. I updated my graphics drivers (though I was only one version behind) and even sought a special ASUS driver for the monitor to resolve the issue, but nothing has helped.

Did Windows recently add a forced refresh rate sync between all monitors recently? If so, that really sucks because I only own one 144Hz monitor.

A:Dual monitor setup locks 144Hz monitor at 60Hz

Are you sure the other monitors are independent (dual or multiple mode) rather than cloning the main monitor? If they clone the main monitor, then this explains the 60Hz refresh rate, as all settings (resolution, color depth, refresh rate) should be common for all monitors and the others can only do 60Hz.

Hello, The title pretty much says it all.  I have a Lenovo Edge laptop with a Intel5500 graphics chipset.  I'm connecting to my external monitor via the HDMI adapter, but I'm not able to achieve 60Hz refresh rate at 4k resolution.  Can anyone help or confirm that the Lenovo Edge HDMI port is version 2.0 and or if there's anything else I should try?

Since I've been using nothing but subpar laptops and consoles my whole life, I decided this summer to build my first gaming PC. I've put a Ryzen 1600 cpu, 16 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 Mhz RAM,MSI - B350 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard and the GPU best for my budget, a GTX 1060 6GB. From the benchmarks I've looked at online, in games I plan to play like The Witcher 3, Battlfield 4 and 1, or fallout 4, I will grab anywhere from 60-70 fps in these games. Up until now I hadn't put any thought into my monitor, but after being told by a friend that 144 hz was worth the leap and a big difference I looked into it. My core question is- If I am getting 60-70 fps in games on a 144hz monitor, is there any potential cons or downsides like screen tearing or something alike to that effect? Would it make more sense to get a 60hz monitor instead with this GPU? Budget is around 400 CAD$

A:60hz vs 120hz?

There are some pretty neat things about 120hz displays. First, you don't have to worry about 3:2 pulldown since all you have to do is display each unique frame 5 times (24*5=120). This gives your video a certain smoothness (you probably won't see it from your cable box) that is hard to explain in words - you just have to see it. You'll need a good source though, bluray or hd-dvd.

Some people complain about the look of such sources on a 120hz display because it makes everything look like it was filmed with a camcorder. It's very noticable to me, but a few people I've had look can't tell the difference at all. I suggest you go to a store and see how you feel about it first hand - and make sure they hook up a decent source when you do this testing.

I'm using an LCD screen that has an inbuilt DVD player. I guess it's basically a T.V. but I use it for my PC.

I've got my resolution set to 1600x1024 and Windows 7 tells me that I can go up 120hz, but when I choose it the input is not supported.

I understand that VGA Monitors can't support 120hz, but I'm wondering why it says I can use it?

My NVIDIA control panel says I can go up to 85hz, however.

The lower I set my resolution = the more hertz Windows tells me I can use, but I still can't use more than 85hz.

Anyone able to explain this to me? Thanks.

A:Gaming PC monitor, IPS or 120hz?

120HZ: Amazing in FPS games. Only 'works' if you give it more than 60fps from your GPU, which with a GTX670 you'll be pushing it in the latest games..

Games look really fluid on 120Hz and are more responsive to mouse movement. They are also only 24inch 1920x1080 resolution.

IPS: They look really pretty, have amazing colors, have wide viewing angles. Usually are limited to 60Hz (Yamakasi Catleap OC ones go higher), have a lot wider variety of recolutions and sizes.

I bought this laptop specifically to use for 3D development and made sure to get the nVidia GT650M to assist in this. I just got my nVidia Vision 2 kit and successfully upgraded the nVidia drivers from their site. However when I go into the monitor settings I am only given an option for 60Hz; there is no option to switch to 120Hz. I am unable to locate a driver update to assist in this. I used Dell's update for the GT650M but it's the same as what I installed from nVidia.
Where can I get a driver to update to 120Hz?

A:Dell Inspiron 17R update from 60Hz to 120Hz for 3D on Windows8

I have a 17R myself the SE 7720 version, you are aware that there are a few versions of this units being sold by Dell, where some units are specifically designed for 3D use while others like mine, even though I have a NVidia GT650M like you, will not support 3D, There are version for the 17R SE 7720 that do, I just didn't opt to purchase the unit with 3D support.
I'm pretty sure that the different unit versions in question use different LCD panels,  and have a 3D infrared transmitter near the top by the Web Cam.  
You might want to check to insure that the exact model version you have was designed for 3D.

Hi everyone!

My current specs are as folllows:

Intel i5 3570K (Stock)
ASUS GTX 670 DCII (Stock)
GSkill Ripjaws 2x4GB

Currently gaming on a Samsung SyncMaster B2030 20" monitor. The resolution is only 1600x900 @ 60Hz.

I was thinking that I should pick up a new monitor to justify the rig that I've built. I have been looking at 24" monitors that have a resolution of 1920x1080. Now, here's the dilemma. I see a lot of 120Hz monitors and people saying that they are much better suited to gaming (especially FPS, which is what I usually enjoy). Upon researching a bit, I came upon the BenQ XL2420T. It's quite expensive but I might just be able to pick it up if it's completely worth it. So here are my questions:

1. Has anyone had any experience with the BenQ XL2420T and what are your views?

2. Is 120Hz worth it and will there be any noticeable difference?

3. Will my single GTX 670 be able to handle it? Just for perspective, I run Crysis 3 @ a little over 50 FPS average with all settings Very High, FXAA and Transparency AA enabled in nVidia Control Panel. I'm also open to OCing my GPU and CPU (using a Corsair H100).

4. Any other suggestions?

Look forward to your responses.

A:Monitor advice -- 120Hz worth it for gaming?

The 670 will be able to give you those 120 fps in less demanding games, however you may end up turning the quality and resolution down for the more demanding titles (such as Crysis 3). So you have a choice, sacrifice image quality for more fluid game-play, or get an IPS monitor, which will give you much superior color, but you'll have to live with 60 fps. (In my opinion, 60fps is enough, although that's a matter of opinion)

Im really looking to replace my 19 inch widescreen LCD with a better monitor. My current one has a res of only 1400x900 so I need some suggestions on an HD, 1080p 120Hz monitor, 22 inches or bigger for my gaming. I love playing with vertical sync on to rid myself of tearing in games and a refresh rate of only 75 is too slow for me. I realize the human eye can only see around that I think but having an old CRT monitor years ago that went to 120hz I noticed a big jump in my gaming. Plus it just looked prettier and smoother with all options on and no slowdowns lol. Also having HD will make the colors pop more too I believe. Thank you to anyone that can help me with some suggestions on what to get.

I have a few days ago received this monitor.

Samsung S23A750D 23" 120Hz

I am using it with a Gainward Nvidia GTX570 Phantom GPU via DisplayPort cabling.

The trouble I am having is that the monitor has great trouble picking up a signal from the GPU when the computer has gone into sleep mode or been switched off (at this point I can get a signal to the monitor). It's only when I turn the computer back on and then the monitor that I get no signal. To get a signal I have to remove the power cable and put back in or sometimes remove the DP cable and put back in.

I have tried not turning the monitor off (the monitor goes into a sleep mode when the computer goes into sleep mode) but on putting the computer on it does not pick up a signal.

It is only by removing the power cable and/or DisplayPort cable will I get a signal. And this is intermittent.

I have tried upgrading the firmware from Samsung but this hasn't helped.

Any ideas?

Hi, I just bought a new PC but I didn't buy a monitor. So I hooked my new rig to my old ADI Microscan 15 inch CRT monitor (don't laugh and I don't remember the model number). Now the refresh rate is locked at 60hz even if I uncheck the "Hide Unsupported Modes" option. With the old rig I could normally set the refresh rate to 85hz (maximum supported mode), but now I feel some very slight flickring with 60hz.

Specs for new rig: Intel Dual Core 2.6, 4GB RAM, XFX HD6670 DD3 1GB, Windows 7.
Old rig : AMD Athlon 1.4, 512MB RAM, Geforce FX5500 256MB, Windows XP SP3.

The refresh rate is locked regardless of screen resolution. My current is 1024x768.

I tried the Catalyst Control Center but it gives me only 59hz, 60hz.

The HD6670 has a VGA port so I connected the monitor directly without having to buy a converter (If it was a possible point of debate).

Any help would be appreciated.

I've had a 144hz monitor for a while now, (Acer GN246HL to be exact) and at first I struggled to get it to 144hz, but eventually I got it working. I just moved into my college dorm room and had to disconnect all my cables to my desktop obviously. Upon reconnecting, I realized that the 144hz option doesnt even show up on change display settings in windows, or nvidia graphics panel. I know I'm using the right DVI-D cable because its the same cable I used to get 144hz before. The setting doesnt even show up. I've tried updating both the graphics drivers and monitor drivers to no avail.

I should mention my main monitor is 1920x1080 and I have two other 1920x1080 monitors that are 60hz on either side using the extend display mode.

A:New Asus 144hz 24in Monitor only showing 60hz??

Often when I initially turn my computer on I get the message from the latest AMD driver:
"The System has detected a problem with the connection between your computer and the DisplayPort display that will prevent you from using the highest resolutions and/or refresh rates." and my 4k monitor would be in 30 hz not 60hz. To fix this problem I either reset my computer or reset the monitor and most of the time it will then go to 60hz. I have already tried a new displayport cable, fresh installed the video drivers and face the same problem. Can anyone help please?

Hey, I had the same problem and I just solved mine, so hopefully it will help yours too.

All I did was unplugged the power cable for 5-10 seconds. After I did that Windows prompted me that "You must restart your computer for these changes to take effect."

Once I restarted everything was fixed. Hope it helps! Good luck to you!

Does anyone have a clue if it is possible to run an ultrawide 3440x1440 monitor via P50 HDMI port.

I have dual graphics - AMD RADEON R9 M265x and INTEL HD 4600. Not sure which one does the HDMI output on the p50-b. I think the Radeon has 2gb DDR5 if this is important.

I am not planing on playing games, I would like the wide screen for productivity - word, spreadsheets, drawings, charts, diagrams etc. - multitasking.

Hi, I bought a T570 in 2017 and thought it can at least support [email protected] with the thunderbolt 3 port. However, I find that it may not be true. I got a thunderbolt 3-to-display-port cabel recently and connected it to my dell p2415q 4k display through the thunderbolt 3 port on the left side of my T570. When I tried to change the resolution setting in intel graphics option, I find that it only has 30hz option for 3840x2160 resolution. NO 60hz!!! I tried to update my intel driver to the latest. NOT WORKING. 30hz is the only option. I highly doubt the T570 specificaition is wrong. It doesn't support even single [email protected] So diasspointed with this product.

Based on pre-sales advice from Dell, I've purchased a new laptop - Inspiron 15 7000 Series (Intel) - 7579.
Now I'm eagerly awaiting its delivery. I know that the CPU & integrated graphic card support 4K monitor at 60Hz.
Are you able to recommend what cable and monitor I can purchase to hook up to my new laptop?

My laptop's monitor is broken, so I use an external monitor plugged in through an HDMI cord. I updated to Windows 10 and can't figure out how to toggle between display settings. I know you can do Windows + P and select expand, but seeing as I have a broken laptop monitor I can't do anything.

I have HP Desktop Tower Pavilion with windows 10, I had two HP S2031 monitors in dual mode, worked fine. One of them died, I got a good deal on a larger HP 27er monitor.  I hooked it up, they were both working fine ... it was using a default monitor
setting ... and then yesterday the computer downloaded some updates, and in doing so, it downloaded the driver for the HP 27er and installed.  The next thing that happens is the older HP S2031 starts to go dark ... like it is going into sleep mode, and
then it is totally black.  On reboot, it starts up with both monitors working, but within seconds of reboot the HP S2031 goes black again. The HP S2031's buttons do nothing, other than the power button, which turns it off and on, but that is it.  
I have done all troubleshooting, I did not even have them set up to sleep, all settings are at NEVER.  In coming here, I have done all the fixes I can find for similar  that are posted for similar issues, the Windows Key + W... nothing. 
The create new power plan ... nothing.  the device manger>display adapters>disable then enable ... nothing.  and lastly Start>Control Panel>System>Device Manager>display adapter>driver tap>update ... still nothing.  HOW
DO I GET THE HP S2031 MONITOR TO NOT BE IN SLEEP AND HAVE BLACK SCREEN.  I can not figure this out and am not finding any fix.

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

A:Monitor Issues - Laptop Reading Built In Monitor as if it were my external monitor.

Only thing I can think of is to disconnnect the external monitor, uninstall any monitors listed and then reboot and hope the computer installs the correct drivers for the laptop monitor.

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

I've been using this laptop for two years now, and I would like to upgrade my display panel to a 120hz one.I saw the N156HHE-GA1 which looks pretty sick. My question is if it's anyway compatible with the laptop and if you have any other option to suggest for my upgrade. Thank you
