BenQ XL2410T - can't use 120hz!
Hello,

I'm having an issue with my newly purchased monitor; the BenQ XL2410T. It is 3D vision compatible and supports 120hz @ 1920x1080 as native resolution. I have bought this monitor for that specific purpose.

However, I cannot go beyond 60hz no matter the resolution.
The monitor is plugged on my laptop (Asus G1) on the DVI output.
All my drivers are updated (motherboard, monitor, graphic card) and I'm running Windows 7 x64.
My nvidia card (Geforce 7700 Go) has been unsupported since 2009; I thought old drivers could be the culprit but even by installing the latest (301.34) using a modded INF, I still cannot go beyond 60hz.

Please, help!

In order to get 120hz, you need to be connected to a Dual Link DVI port, Laptops old and new do not have Dual Link DVI ports, so getting 120hz from this laptop will not be possible unfortunately.

Single-link DVI just doesn't have the bandwidth to handle 120Hz refresh rates, unfortunately.

Yeah it seems that my graphic card (an old geforce go 7700) doesn't support dual link.
Thank you anyways for your help, much appreciated
