No 120Hz refresh rate option

My laptop had 120hz refresh rate until now, now when trying to change refresh rate in display configuration suddenly there is no 120hz, only 60hz in my options.
How can I fix it? do anyone else faced this problem in kde?

You should check the driver in use.

I can see my nvidia drivers deleted and it runs video-linux now.
What driver is video-linux?

video-linux is the opensource drivers - and I don’t think they support 120Hz

sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

What do this command?

install the non free drivers - in your case nvidia - as you explicitly mention nvidia.

Will I see any difference with 120HZ if I use my laptop only for programming and basic daily usage?

No, it won’t. In fact, I might be wrong, but I think it’ll improve your battery life. I also only use my screen(s) at 60Hz refresh rate, and even in the 2 games I play every once-in-a-while it’s perfect to me.
