How to get monitor EDID and information?

10 posts in this topic

How to retrieve monitor information like manufacturer name, product name or the data string?

WMI and "Win32_" functions don't work at all on my machine.

I know it's possible because madVR does it correctly:

Thanks in advance for your help!

Did you search the forum?
I know this has been discussed a few times and some scripts might do what you want.

I tried all the code samples from the forum and internet!

I tried to modified them and I have got the EDID but not for all the monitors and impossible to retrieve the info I want:

  • Model name (if any)
  • Manufacturer
  • Plug and Play ID
  • Data string (if any)

Is there an EDID full parser?

You can use Registry.  here are some information of registry keys https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/jj133967(v=vs.85).aspx

Then You need to parse EDID https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Display_Identification_Data

 

An alternative can be use a nirsoft tool called DumpEDID and pase the std output.

After further researches I think I will do this as it's probably the simplest solution.
