You say you use that monitor with your ps3 and your Windows 7 PC. And you say that now the ps3 doesn't seem [?] to work any more. So what's the relation with installing a file in Windows 7?

I didn't know the term "EDID". So I searched in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_display_identification_data
That seems to say that it's a message from the screen to the video card on your PC or in your PS3 telling the capabilities of the monitor. Why do you think it's a file?
