    PowerShell to detect how many video socket and type a PC comes with


    Hi Everyone,

    I hope someone can give me some help as I'm getting crazy finding a solution for this. I work in the IT Helpdesk department for a company and we service around 400 PCs. One of our tasks is to keep track of what type of machines and monitors we have (i.e. i7 8gb RAM 2 Display Ports etc.).

    I use PowerShell to retrive the majority of info I need from a remote PC (CPU, RAM, HDD, Serial Number etc.).

    However, one piece of information I am not able to retrieve is to check the total monitor ports that a PC comes with (i.e. 2 Display Ports, 1 VGA).

    I've managed to find the below PowerShell command which lists only hot plugged monitors and type of socket:

    get-ciminstance -namespace root/wmi -classname WmiMonitorConnectionParams

    PowerShell to detect how many video socket and type a PC comes with [​IMG]


    Query type of video card connections (HDMI/VGA/DVI/ETC) - Super User

    The example above shows 2 Diplay Ports Monitors plugged but it is not listing the HDMI port that this PC also has.

    Question is: Is there any PS command or maybe an application that can detect the total amount of graphic input a PC has and their type (i.e. HDMI, DP, VGA etc.)

    Thank you!

    :)

    Hi OldNavyGuy,

    Thank you for the prompt reply. More than what graphic card or GPU the PC has I need to know the total of video connector type (either in use or not).
    The PS to detect the type of Graphic Card doesn't tell me if, for example, PC1 has 2 Display Ports and 1 VGA and PC2 has 2 HDMI.

    Hope it makes sense.
