Re: BROKEN MONITOR BASE
The 4 holes on the back are standard and you may find on the web, a monitor mount. You could also search ebay for the exact same monitor with a broken screen and get it very cheap and use the base off it.

Sorry to hear that the stand had broken on your monitor.
many times there is a mounting in the center of the monitor back that accepts a standard 4 screw mounting, which almost any brand monitor will fit on, many of these type stands will adjust in height and also sometimes rotate to a portrait if you should like to read documents with the narrow side to the top.rotated 90 deg. some monitors do not have this option the mount is called (VESA mounting holes, 100mm (Behind attached base plate) but eBay is a great course for this type of part. I should have one of the Dell original mounts in my older parts area. but i see (Problem with Dell E197FP LCD Monitor) and (E173FPs) both in this unsolved problems, and knot knowing exactly the broken area, not sure of all you need to repair the broken area in question. Sprint6@zoominternet.net for personal help with this unit.
There is a tab that locks the assembly onto the monitor. Find the tab, press it & unslide the assembly off of the monitor or arm. The rotate properly, reslide into position until you hear it snap the locking tab into position. You should never have to pry this tab to umlock it.
When u put on the monitor stand togother did u a snap on sound,yes mean the stand it snap in a hole and held it on somewhere.Look a latch or a knob pull or push on that latch or knob than push the stand up or down u should able to take it out.Or read the owner manual they should have sections on the stand and the base put in and take out instructions.
There is a screw on the part of the base where it connects to the monitor back, it is located on the pivoting arm, remove or take loose this screw and lift the base by holding the side opposite the screw. the base should lift off with at very most just a bit of wiggling. You can now use the wall mounting screw holes located under the corners of the sticker on the rear of the monitor, they are usually covered with a perforated area.
Can't find too much info on this monitor. Look for a crease/gap in the plastic around the neck of the stand. Most likely a plastic cover is covering the screws you need to unscrew. You'll probably just have to pop it off.
You may have to first remove the flat part of the base (if looks like it separates from the neck). Check the bottom of the base for tabs or plastic clips holding it to the neck. If the flat part of the base doesn't come off, just look for the plastic covers mentioned above to reveal the screws that are holding the base on.
The base of the G19LWK can be removed but it takes a little work. You have to remove the black plastic case that sandwich the LCD screen. First remove all the screws on the backside of the monitor. Then, at the seam of the two casement halves, GENTLY pry the front screen frame away from the display. Work carefully all around the edge of the display to separate it a little at a time and the pull it away in one piece. Next you will find that the back casement is held to the display with plastic tabs around the perimeter. Carefully pry the tabs away from the display frame to separate and remove the back casement. Now the base mounting is exposed on the backside and held with 4 screws. Remove the screws and the base will come free. Re-assemble the casement by snapping the back on first followed by re-installing the screws. Then snap the front frame by lining of the plastic tabs and pressing the frame down evenly around the display. You are done!
At the base you want to remove - in order to pack the monitor - if you se at the rear left and right there are a tiny opening about 3 cm long,put inside a screw driver and it will open very easly the plastic cover.Then inside there are four screws,two on each side,remove them and the arm of the screen will be dis-attached.
For monitor or TV bases that have four clips, I found if two people each take two opposite clips, and use thumbs to push in the clips, we can pop the base off fairly easily. It is impossible with one person, since thumb and forefinger can't exert sufficient pressure on the clips.
