Acer Monitor - Model X223W - Can't get base (arm) off...

Trying to use a quad multiple monitor stand... Now that I have the monitors to do that with, I can't get that arm that holds the base off the back of the computer. Spoke with Acer technical support and they said they couldn't help -- I would have to figure it out on my own...

Thanks for any help you can provide...

i have the same problem with the AL1717. After hours figuring it out, i found the solution.. if you slide off the cover holding the back arm, you will expose the screws holding the arm which you can screw off to take off the back arm....

the cover can easily slide off as it is only 'clicked' into place.... gently put your fingers on the cover apply some pressure to slide it out...

I have an Acer X223W, I need to pack it back in the original box. How do I take the stand off so it fits? Thank you!


If I am not mistaken this model has a screw on the bottom of the stand that secures the stand to the monitor.

What you need to do is to flip up the ring that is connected to the screw and then turn the screw in the anti-clockwise direction. Which will loosen the screw and allow you to remove the stand.

Take care!

I need to get a foot stand for my acer x233w 22" monitor. the acer company is useless. i have googled this and located nothing at all, anywhere. can you tell me where i might buy a stand? please help...


I have the same monitor (i really like it a lot), same problem: Monitor does not sit up high enough, and i needed it much higher.

I'm thinking the middle of the screen should be just about eye level.

I tried this and that but had to settle for about 20 or so large books 'n' magazines underneath my monitor, it doesn' look sexy but it certainly does the trick.

Taking stand off screen


The base can be removed by pressing the tab on the back of the stand. I do not think that the actual "neck" of the stand can be removed.
I found a manual here (has a few helpful diagrams): http://www.retrevo.com/support/Acer-X223W-Monitors-manual/id/23224ci553/t/2/

Monitor stand screws


More likely to be metric M4 screws, 1/2" will more likely to be long enough.

I have a dual monitor system, both are the x223w. Same problem but only on the second monitor. Backlight shuts off.On/off light stays blue. I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on. I returned it and Acer could not find any problem so I got it back. No problem for awhile and now a few times over the past couple days. Not good...

I have not answered the question about this problem, however someone else told me that I would have to change my graphics card to take full advantage of the features of the X223W monitor. But they did not know what I had to change it to.

Hi..there,
If you wanted to be crystal clear... Try using a DVI cable if your monitor got these function. Happy Holidays!
