Legion Y520 monitor 144Hz

Greetings,


I have the Legion Y520-IKBN connected with a USB-C adapter to DP a 144 Hz monitor (Acer XF270HUA). I want to know how can I use freesync in these conditions? Because the monitor is connect to the intel graphics and I cant access the freesync options on Nvidia panel. Its already switched to discrete in the BIOS. 

 

Thanks,

Looking forward for your help.

Hi FelipeF! Welcome to our forums community. Firstly, make sure you've connected the display to your GPU using DisplayPort and not HDMI.
1. Activate FreeSync on your display, using on-screen controls.
2. Right-click NVIDIA logo on your Windows 10 taskbar.
3. Choose "NVIDIA Control Panel".
4. Choose "Change resolution" on the left menu.
5. Set the highest refresh rate for the FreeSync monitor.
6. Choose "Set up G-Sync" on the left menu.
7. Check the "Enable G-Sync" for the FreeSync monitor.
8. Fire up your favorite game and make sure there's no screen tearing or stuttering. Also, make sure you disable V-Sync.

Okaydoki, Thanks for answering.

This monitor does not have the option to activate freesync in the on-screen menu.

Since the monitor is connected to intel, I dont have the option to change its resolution through nvidia control panel. Nevertheless, its already set to the highest refresh rate.

I does not have ANY option regarding the display in the nvidia control panel, so I cant click G-sync...

Thanks for your attention.

 

This monitor does not have any free sync option in on-screen menu.

 

The monitor is connect to the intel, so I cant change anything on the nvidia control panel. Following is the image of my nvidia control panel.

 

Its already set to the highest rate in the windows and intel control panel...Untitled.png

Re: Legion Y520 monitor 144Hz

What? of course it didnt work... As I said, I dont have any options for the display on the nvidia control panel. The monitor is connected with the intel for some reason.

 

I am using a USB-C adapter to DP to connect the external monitor. But the notebook monitor is also on intel, so the problem could be some internal connection.

Try uninstalling Nvidia Component under Programs and features. Reinstall it directly from the Nvidia website together with the driver. Let us know how it goes.
