Can't find any way to bring 144hz refreshrate to my monitor on the Legion Y520... any pointers?

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.display.pngintel.png

I bought USB-C adapter to DVI-D and I'm getting 120hz , It will do 130hz but but picture quality is bad .
I've also installed overclocking monitor software.

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.
