    Can I get 144hz if I plug my laptop via mini display to display port into an external monitor?


    Hi


    I'm planning to buy a new external monitor for my laptop because my laptop monitor is too small. I want to get a 144hz monitor because it's smoother than 60hz. I looked on Amazon and I came down to the Viewsonic XG2402 monitor found here: https://www.amazon.ca/ViewSonic-FreeSync-Monitor-DisplayPort-XG2402/dp/B075D1B4SV/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536424533&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Viewsonic+xg2402 My laptop (an ASUS Gl752vw) has a GTX 960M, mini display port, and an HDMI port. I was wondering if I can plug my laptop into the monitor via a minidisplayport to displayport cable (like this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Rankie-DisplayPort-Cable-Ready-Black/dp/B00YOQYQWY/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1536424679&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Mi) and still get the 144hz? I know this seems like a stupid question but I couldn't get the answer to this so I was just wondering if this is possible.

    :)

    No display on laptop's external monitor-Monitor recognized but blank


    After the recent Windows 10 update, my wife's laptop no longer displays on the external monitor. All was well before the update.

    I am comfortable that Windows sees the monitor because clicking on Display Settings shows two displays. If I unplug the HDMI cable, only one display is shown.

    I have confirmed that the monitor works by trying it with another laptop. I have also changed the HDMI cable between the laptop and the external monitor.

    Device manager reports that I have the latest display driver installed.

    I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

    Mini Display port not working when connected to monitor

    HI, Im using a MSI GT60 2QD notebook with Windows 10 home(1803). When i conneted to LG 34UC98 monitor via Mini Display port, my notebook didn't appear any external monitor selection for my to chooose. I had tried "uninstall and re-install
