Hey so I found this linux utilityto read and write EDID information. I havent tried it yet as I am afraid of messing up my display, But I believe that it can be used to write a good EDID to our displays, either the one provided by windows or another one that We are able to decode. Does anybody have any experience with this utility/ think this is arealistic solutuion
I tried it, unfortunately it does not work, my laptop had 8 devices on the i2c bus, number 2 being listed as the 'Panel', if you try a read or write to this or indeed most of the devices it gives an IO error. Devices 6 & 7 were listed as DDC and they did accept the read/write without the IO Error but timed out, assume these are for external displays. Looks like Toshiba don't put the hardware in the display for the EDID.
