Hi there, i have a acer nitro 5 laptop, with a nvidia 3060 graphics card, when i connect it to my external monitor which is a benq xl2720z via HDMI, it will not allow me to go 1920x1080, the lowest res i can use with a higher refresh rate is 1280x720, but that isnt full screen on the monitor, I purchased a DP to hdmi adaptor, but that doesnt seem to work, is there anything else I can do? Im guessing the monitor doesnt support 120 - 144hz @ 1080p via HDMI? please help :)

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

You might want to read through the datasheet for your monitor, here, you won't get 144Hz off of HDMI, more like with an DVI-D DL adapter or a DP connection.

Mind sharing a link to the adapter you purchased? As for your laptop, mind sharing an SKU to it?
