Laptop : Acer a515-51g
Graphics card: Nvidia Mx150 (471.96 driver version)
Integrated graphics: Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 (30.0.100.9687)

I bought an external monitor few months back (Acer vg240ys - upto 165 hz amazon link for specs). The monitor has two hdmi 2.0 ports and 1 dp port. My laptop has no dp port and I think the hdmi port is 1.4 according to this quora answer. So I connect through a hdmi cable. Nvidia control panel only shows 3d settings (link).

Now I will explain the problem I have started facing recently. When I first bought the monitor my fps was capped to 30 fps when I selected fullscreen mode in valorant. But selecting windowed fullscreen (1920 x 1080 120 Hz) resolution gave around stable 90-120 fps. So I continued playing in that mode. But recently I don't know how (maybe after some driver update) valorant displays wrong monitor resolution (Please open this screenshot). My monitor is not 4k but it displays 3840 x 2160 Monitor resolution. Even when I have selected 1920 x 1080 120 hz resolution the game is very laggy and I get 20-70 fps (it drops from 60-70 to 20 fps during gun fights and other interactions). Earlier the Monitor option displayed VG240YS (1920 x 1080 16:9) instead of ACR0750 (3840 x 2160 16:9). ACR0750 is the monitor id.
My problem is similar to this reddit post and also this post.
3840 x 2160 is also the max resolution I can select in my display settings. I think the problem is something to do with active signal mode or wrong gpu native resolution. Please also go through this answer. I have no compatibility mode option in my monitor menu.
There is no dsr or any scaling option in nvidia control panel.
I have tried most of the solution I referenced in my post but they either don't work or are not applicable to my setup. I really don't know what I did wrong because the game ran smoothly 1 month back with the correct monitor resolution diplayed.

Dsr may not be set in NvidiaCP but do you use Geforce Experience to optimise because dsr factors can be changed there too from memory.
There is no dsr or any scaling option in geforce experience. I even reinstalled windows when none of the solution worked which also uninstalled nvidia cp and geforce experience. But it did not help.
