Dear helpers,



Since the video of linus with the upgrade to a 120hz screen on a laptop i have been non stop searching to make this happen to my own laptop.

I have run into some problems i cant figure out myself.



https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GP72VR-6RF-Leopard-Pro/Specification <- See link for my specific laptop.



As you see at the screen options 120hz is a thing. When i bought this laptop i didnt see this as an option in the shop.

After being superhappy with my laptop for over 2 years that still runs all the games on 60+ frames i feel its time to give it an upgrade.



Finding a screen for this specific laptop only gives me options to 60hz with a 30-pin connector. ( Since it has a 40pin to 30pin edp installed)

All the 120hz screens seem to have a 40-pin connector. (Still leopard pro parts but not my specific one.)



How is it possible that its a factory option but will not fit with aftermarket parts?

Im really scared that i will order the 120hz one and be stuck with a screen that will not fit.

I have found a other user that tried to do the switch on my specific laptop with a 40 to 40pin EDP cable but it just stays black.
