    Windows Powershell- Detect Docking Stations and attached monitors

    I am trying to write a script to detect all docking stations and monitors attached to those docking station for Lenovo Thinkpad t540p laptops on a domain network. Most of the monitors are Asus. Any suggestions or is this even possible? Running powershell from DEV WIN 10

    You could use cmdlet Get-CimInstance:

    Get-CimInstance -Namespace root\wmi -ClassName WmiMonitorBasicDisplayParams

    Click image for larger version.

    Multiply the horizontal and vertical image size with 40 to get resolution in pixels. For example MaxHorizontalImageSize 48 / MaxVerticalImageSize 27 = 1920 * 1080 resolution.

    More information about the monitors can be found with the following command:

    Get-CimInstance win32_desktopmonitor
    -- OR --
    Get-CimInstance win32_videocontroller | select caption, CurrentHorizontalResolution, CurrentVerticalResolution

    And, if needed, information about the GPU:

    Get-CimInstance win32_videocontroller
