BenQ XL2410T EDID file

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just got my BenQ XL2410T and it only allows me to run in 640x480 resolution. After further research, I have come to the conclusion that the EDID on my monitor. I know alot of people on OCN have this monitor and I was wondering if someone could send me their EDID so I can flash my monitor to fix it. This should take you less than five minutes.

If you have this monitor, and are willing to help me, here are the steps:

1. Have your XL2410T Connected Via DVI
2. Download Phoenix EDID Editor and extract it.
3. Run it and click the Extract EDID Registry toolbar button.
4. Select your monitor from the list, and click extract EDID
5. Go to File > Save EDID and save it as a .DAT file
6. Send me a copy of the EDID file

If you are willing to take a couple minutes to do this, I would be very grateful (Will +rep to those who help) as I would not have to go through the trouble of RMA'ing the monitor.

EDIT: got the file I needed, thanks for everyone that helped or tried too!

EDIT 2: I was not able to flash the EDID successfully using software. However, you can fix the problem by install a custom driver for the monitor. Recently, I've been getting PM's for the EDID file and I didn't realize so many other people have this problem so I will attach a modified INF for this monitor.

BenQ XL2410T working INF.zip 1k .zip file

Heres how you apply it:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
1. Unzip it to whereever you like

2. Open up device manager

3. Find your monitor in device manager (mine usually shows up as Generic Non PnP Monitor)

4. Right click > Properties > Driver Tab

5. Update driver > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer > Have Disk

6. Browse to the file you unzipped and hit okay

7. Select BenQ XL2410T from the list and hit next

8. After it tells you it is successful, restart and you should be able to get it into 1080p 120hz

Dear Daguardian,

Could you please also send me same EDID file for my XL2410T too?
I have same issue with my monitor as Winterrr, however I don't think it's possible to flash new EDID especially for this model.
Anyway, I can create custom EDID and use it in Windows 7 - it will be enough at least for Win7 (my primary system).

Thank you in advance and hope on your understanding!

P.S. BTW Winterrr - did you flash your monitor successfully? If so, by which software?

Thanks to Winterrr for INF file with EDID!

Now I'm with 120Hz., however without 3D - Nvidia wizard still can't recognize 3D monitor by overwritten EDID in registry. Any ideas how to teach NVIDIA 3D wizard that I have correct monitor?

You also need to install the drivers for the monitor if you want everything to work as expected.

I did, thats how I've got my 120Hz back. So, in Device manager I have now Monitors->BenQ XL2410T (BNQ7F02 EDID Override)

However, in NVIDIA control panel I still have just a "Digital Display" instead of BenQ Xl2410T (as was with undamaged flash and EDID).

Is the name of the monitor in the EDID info? Maybe the name of the monitor wasn't specified in the EDID and that's why it isn't showing correctly.


Try a clean install of the Nvidia drivers and see if that fixes the problem.

Sorry I just saw your post now.

Seems like you have it sorted though.

Ok, guys. It woks now for me! Finally!!

The reason is weird - NVIDIA drivers frown.gif

for v295.73 - even 2D doesn't work - after Win7 loaded monitor went to sleep mode (yellow light)
for v285.62 - 2D works fine (120Hz detected and works fine), but no 3D - just had a message No 3D monitor found and thats all

So, I've decided do downgrade to exact version when it worked fine half a year ago (before bad RMA and cleared EDID by service). This version is 270.61.

So, I'll stay with this version of drivers because with EDID override I have 120 Hz and fully functional 3D!

Thank you every one for help! smile.gif
