How to Find Out Your Monitor Specifications
There are several ways to verify monitor specifications. If you know the exact name of the monitor, you can just check it out on google.com.
You can almost always find the monitor name and model on the back side of the monitor. The back side of the display should look similar to this.
Once you know the exact name of the monitor, you can check the specifications on Google. It shouldn’t be hard, enter the name of the model and write the word – “specifications” of the model at the end. In my case, the monitor’s brand is “ASUS” and the version of the monitor is “VP247T”. In google I write “vp247t specifications” and got the following results.
After checking the manufacturer’s page, I easily found that my monitor’s maximum Hertz (refresh rate) is 60Hz.
