Stimuli display issue

I need some an assistance please…

My lecturer sent me some files to work on, while working on it, I received the notification below. Is there a fix for this? If not, what level of laptop would you suggest?

OS (e.g. Win11):
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x):
Standard Standalone? (y/) If not then what?:
**What are you trying to achieve?:display

What did you try to make it work?:

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:

Thank you in advance!


your monitor is capable to display visual stimuli with a speech of 60 Hz or approx. 16.667 ms. You can do the math yourself why the time you requested doesn‘t work. You need to adjust the presentation duration of the frequency of your screen.

Don‘t expect proper timing/duration on a laptop or any LCD/LED-monitor. You find a couple of articles in Psyndex about these technical problems and suggestion how to overcome them.

PsychoPy itself is really good at timing. It is the hardware it is running on that sets the limits.
