After removing all the screws, i used a knife to remove the plastic casing surrounding the monitor. that exposed four screws that when removed, released the base from the monitor. it was just a matter of putting the casing back together. thanks

You need to remove the cover that hides the 4 screws that hold the stand to the monitor. There are 3 pieces to the pedestal base. The base plate, the pedestal, and the screw cover. To remove the screw cover, look on the back where the pedestal attaches to the monitor. There is a cover just above the pedestal. Pinch the top left and top right sides (about one inch from edge) to unclip the cover. Remove the 4 silver screws (2 on each tab) and put them in a ziploc bag to avoid losing them. Tape them to the pedestal/base and cover.
should be four screws holding it on. Take them off and keep them safe. The monitor is made to take this off and mount to a VESA square block plate for wall-mount etc.. look and you will see them there.
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.
Personally, I've never seen a monitor damage a motherboard. Since monitors have their own power source, the HP answer of the monitor "drawing too much power" is bogus.
Possible failures could include the following:
Failing Power Supply - if you haven't tried a different power source, then that is the 1st thing I'd look at, expecially if another system will run the monitor.
A peripheral item, (Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, scanner or other USB device is preventing POST completion of boot completion.) try booting system with just video and power, nothing else.
Check the monitor cable for bent/broken pins. I have seen bent pins on a cable connection short out a video card, this could cause a no post if the video is integrated.
I just reviewed the HP site on this system, and it appears to ship with a PCI-E video card. It appears most likely that the Video Card (If one is installed). If you have the PCI-E video card in system, remove it, and connect to the intergrated video connection and see if ystem posts.
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!
