Using a 120hz monitor on a t440p laptop

I can only get 60hz connecting my laptop to my Acer 120hz monitor through HDMI.

Is there anything I can do or am I doomed to play on 60hz?

Would this do the trick? Almost seems too easy.

this may be pretty obvious but just to avoid sadness make sure your gpu can run 120 Hz

I used to have a laptop and wanted to see if I could use it with a 120hz monitor and get 120hz. This was the most useful reply I got: http://www.teamfortress.tv/36444/laptop-to-external-display-is-120hz-possible#2

Display adapter properties doesn't do anything because my integrated graphics card is an Intel HD, but my laptop also has a GeForce GT 730 graphics card, so I'm not sure if that helps or not.
