Angry HP Omen laptop - 75hz backwards compatibility?

Hello everyone,

I've been reading posts for a while on this forum but this is my first question to the community.
I recently purchased a gaming laptop ( HP OMEN ) with a 1080p 75hz display and a GTX 1060 6GB. I like it so far but am greatly frustrated with something; it's killing me. Playing with constant 60 fps is important to me. Thing is, with a 75hz monitor, for complete smoothness, I need to achieve 75 fps instead of 60. It's 15 fps over the sweet60 for the same feeling! In most demanding AAA games, my laptop can run em well over 60 but sometimes under 75 fps. So my rig has the firepower to run games over 60fps but it still stutters as if I have 40-45. I am really disappointed. I tried turning G-Sync ON/OFF, tried different types of vsync via the NCP.... I am pretty new with these kind of monitors, is there something I don't understand? People with 144hz monitors need 120+ fps for full smoothness?! It's almost non-achievable with AAA games on high/ultra settings.
Is there a way to downgrade my 75hz monitor to 60hz ?

English isn't my mother tongue and I did everything I could to describe this issue of mine.
Cheers!

If you go to Settings> Display>Display adapter properties and under the monitor tab is 60Hz an option?BTW ultra settings on AAA games that are recent with a 1060 might be a little optimistic.

Thank you for your answer. I did try to find 60hz in the display adapter settings but it's not there. I can only see 40hz and 75hz. The 1060 can play most AAA games at high. I have over 60 fps in most of them; I just can't reach steady 75!

I think you're stuck with the 75 Hz might have to go to an external monitor.You can always look in the Nvidia control panel and create a custom resolution and see if you can get to 60 that way.

I used MSI Afterburner to cap my FPS to 60. It's not perfect but it's better. I guess I'll have to stick with that.
