How can I choose Refresh Rate on Laptop?

Recommended Posts

Greetings.  I recently purchased an MSI GE75 Raider Gaming Laptop, i7-10875H, 32 GB, Nvidia RTX2070 Super (Mobile), 17" 300 Hz panel , SSD.  Very happy with it.  

Question:  How can I choose a refresh rate other than 60 or 300 (those are the only 2 options presented in Display Settings -> Advanced Display Settings -> Refresh Rate drop down).  I notice the Advanced Display Settings is "connected to Intel UHD Graphics" with no way to change that to the dedicated card.  Finally, if there is a way to do this in Nvidia Control Panel, my old eyes have not found it 🙂

I would like to experiment with other values, i.e. 30, 60, 75, 100, 150, 300 refresh rates.  Thanks for any direction!

Not all screens support a variety of refresh rates.. mine does not.

What are the specs of your laptop screen?

Thanks for the reply.  Not sure what specs I can offer other than 17", 300 Hz, 3msec panel.

You'll need to use the Intel Graphics Control Panel, instead of the Nvidia one. Go to Display and there you may see the available refresh rates.

In some laptops, the integrated display is connected to the Intel GPU, but the DP and HDMI ports may be connected directly to the Nvidia GPU. Before buying an external monitor, try with your TV.

Thanks, Luis, for taking the time to reply.  On my laptop, the Intel Control Panel only manages the UHD Adapter.  I am still searching for a way to control refresh rate on the nVidia Adapter.  nVidia Control Panel has options for 3D Settings and program overrides, but no options for the display (notebook panel) as it assumes that is controlled by Windows / Intel.
