    My newly bought 144hz monitor can only display 120hz at max?


    Dear Support Team,


    I have recently purchased the Acer KG251Q 24.5inch 144hz monitor. After trying out the monitor - updating drivers(to the latest)/restarting. The maximum refresh rates available for use is still capped at 120hz.


    The event log displayed this after I tried updating the drivers -


    Driver Management concluded the process to install driver kg251q.inf_amd64_3f56c5b3366e8186 for Device Instance ID DISPLAY\ACR0591\5&25A0082B&0&UID4352 with the following status: 0x0.


    Can I assume that that's a failure to update? Please assist.

    :)
