75Hz monitor stuck on 60Hz

Here I have an LG 22EA53VQ-P monitor, which can handle a 75hz refresh rate (Listed in LG's specs) but even after installing the latest driver It still can't go any higher than 60. It's an IPS LED monitor.

I already tried opening my monitor settings but the last option is 60Hz, so no 75Hz option there. I even tried crap resolution to see if it does reach 75Hz that way but no luck, it does max. 60Hz on every resolution. What exactly am I doing wrong? The monitor is not reaching 75Hz on any resolution right now, that surely can't be right?

  1. You sure on that I haven't heard of any IPS monitors that do over 60hz(not that they don't exist). Don't see it listed for refresh on lg's site either.

    Wow I forgot about my own thread? I've read It's specs from multiple sites now and they all list 75Hz. I'd hate it if that's incorrect information provided, and I'll be dissapointed if It's actually just 60Hz. Why does LG have it not listed themselves?
  3. That 75hz is a bit misleading. It says it is the max refresh rate the monitor can handle, but they don't tell you is at what resolution it is max. It will likely handle 75hz at 720p, when using something other than HDMI, but at its native resolution, it won't do more than 60hz.
