I recently purchased a Legion Y520 gaming laptop to replace my old desktop setup. I wanted to connect my 144hz refresh rate monitor to the laptop, but couldn't find a DVI-D port or DisplayPort. All there is to use is an HDMI and USB-C. Neither of these support 144hz refresh rate. I purchased a USB-C to DVI adapter, but even that didn't enable 144hz refresh rate. I'm lost and I still can't find any way to bring back 144hz refresh rate. Is there a different adapter that could help with this? Am I looking in the wrong place? Any kind of help would be appreciated.
-The 144hz refresh rate monitor I am using is an Acer GN246HL.

Could you post the link to the adapter you used? I have the same setup as the main post - Lenovo y520 and an Acer GN246HL, and I can't get it running at 144Hz.
