purchased these monitors to act as a desktop setup with my laptop. I have tired everything I can to extend the display from my laptop to these monitors at 144hz but I can't get more than 60hz. What can I do to get 144hz on my monitors. Here is the setup:


2x Acer Predator XB241H Bmipr 24-Inch Full HD 1920x1080 NVIDIA G-Sync Display, 144Hz
Alienware - M17 17.3 Intel Core I7 - 16 GB, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, 512 GB SSD

I also have the following docking station:

Plugable USB 3.0 Dual 4K Display Horizontal Docking Station with DisplayPort and HDMI for Windows (Dual 4K DisplayPort & HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, Audio, 6 USB Ports)

I have tried a lot of things but nothing has worked so far....

Did you install the specific drivers for the displays? Also, are your video drivers fully up to date?
Hi, yes I updated all of the drivers. I connected my work laptop with a DP to the monitor and it works just fine in 144hz. My alienware m17 has a mini DP and a thunderbolt. The dock is connected to the laptop via thunderbolt. When i connect my monitors to the dock using DP, nothing displays. However, through HDMI, I can extend to both monitors but only in 60hz
