What do you mean by "monitor" serial numbers?  If you are referring to serial numbers from the DISPLAY attached to your PC, I doubt there is any way to do this.  Even though a display probably has a serial number printed on it, I've never seen one that has this programmed into it which would be a prerequisite for obtaining it programmatically.

If there were a way to do it, I suspect that there would be a WMI interface to obtain it.
