It's in Word 2007 format.

For the HTML version try

I don't know how...

I read that paper and it is directed more towards the manufacturers.
There was this link in the paper that might help you out though.

Sorry I can't be of any further help.

I have been dealing with corrupt EDID on my viewsonic for about 4 years. It only works on VGA. If I plug DVI into computer it wont wake up, and if I plug it into a cable box it puts a strange message across screen like unauthorized.

Your best bet is probably to create new .inf/EDID with this faq and follow each step thoroughly.

You will most likely need your OS to stop checking your monitor for its EDID, so you'll have to do some butchering.

I used those two faqs to go above 60Hz on my old 21" CRT
