Unable to change refresh rate to 144hz

I bought the Acer Nitro 7, which was advertised to have a refresh rate up to 144hz. However I am unable to switch the refresh rate via the display properties and its locked at 60hz. I've also tried enabling LCD overdrive but it didn't change the refresh rate. Is there a fix for this? Thank you.

    I have the Nitro 7 as well with 144hz & cannot get it to show up in windows display setting. Model #AN715-51-73BU.  How do I get it to work as I just got it & brand new. Thanks!

    Sorry to inform you but none of the above models have 144, your particular models ship with a 60hz screen
    The main page on the Acer website for the Nitro 7 says 144Hz with a superscript...any time you see a spec with a superscript or asterisk, you should assume that not all models meet that spec.  In this case, scrolling down to the bottom of the page, for that number it says "Specification vary by model and/or region." You can however buy a 144hz replacement screen, details for your model below
