    Managed to reach 64 Hz on a 4K/UHD XPS 15 9550 with a SHP143E panel. I mean, it is an improvement but it's so slight that it's unnoticeable. I suppose this barely counts?

    Hi, I am having trouble doing this at all. I updated my intel hd630 to the lastest drivers. I have a Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop. After updating, I could manually set the refresh rate to 75 hz on the intel graphics control panel but it would just be black and revert back to 60hz. I tried doing the CRU route, but all I got was black screen and a revert. I am lost in terms of what to do. I saw that someone else was able to overclock to 100hz with the same computer so I confused.

    Update: (Well not really an update, since I never posted my previous results here but anyway)

    OCed my laptop IPS monitor connected with presumably eDP 2 lane (Model no. in description) to 74Hz. To be noted: Anything in the Detailed resolutions above 63Hz wouldn't work, giving me artefacts for half a second and going blank with only the backlight on. Only the resolutions in the standard resolutions would work, as I learnt today.

    I could go higher, but anything above 72Hz, it seems, image quality drops significantly. So I ended up with 74Hz. No frame skipping either (100 ISO on phone camera).

    Running on 23.20.16.4849 driver from 27/10/2017. Have no intention of updating the drivers because it is of little use to me. @margroloc

    The image quality on 74hz is noticeably lower but bearable. Apart from calibrating the display in windows (adjusting that vertical gamma slider) is there anything else I could do to improve image quality and thus increase my overclock?

    I've heard LCD screens overclock better than IPS panels, so I might try to overclock my old laptop's 1366x768 screen. Unfortunately, it might be on 1 lane eDP so its restricted to 165MHz

    Hey, I tried this on my Acer Aspire 7 https://www.box.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.002-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-53HF_2283341.html
    (There are the specs and where I bought it from)
    I set the refresh rate up to 75HZ, restarted and the screen isn’t rendering at all. I can’t figure out how to undo the changes I made, I tried resetting my laptop to a previous save point but I don’t have one as I haven’t had the laptop for very long. Please help me!
