Dell E173FPs. I bought this monitor as used connected with the AS500 sound system. However, I do not manage to find any place where I could plug in the power supply cable of the sounds system into the monitor. Should there be a power output for this purpose in this monitor model as well?

Reverse the steps listed below. They are for connecting the sound bar.
1. Working from the rear of the monitor, attach the Soundbar aligning the two slots with the two tabs along the bottom rear of the monitor.
2. Slide the Soundbar to the left until it snaps into place.
3. Connect the Soundbar with the power brick.
4. Plug the power cables of the power brick into a nearby outlet.
5. Insert the lime-green mini stereo plug from the rear of the Soundbar into the computer's audio output jack.
NOTE: Soundbar Power Connector - 12V DC output is for optional Dell Soundbar only.
NOTICE: Do not use with any device other than Dell Soundbar.

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.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Dell monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://www.badcaps.net http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Replacement board:
Replacing transistors would be the last thing in that troubleshooting. First, check all electrolytic capacitors if there are any of them "bubbled", replace those. Next, if there is the fuse used for supplying DC voltage to the inverter area, take it off and check if LED will still blink as before. If there's no such fuse, you can cut the trace, supplying DC voltage to the inverter, another words, you need to unload inverter from power supply and check LED behavior then, if it will stay steady, then next steps will be to troubleshoot the inverter, otherwise, using ohmmeter ring all capacitors and diodes in the power supply part, especially connected to PWM chip at primary side of pulse transformer. By the way, what kind of chip is there?
No, won't work as teh monitor does not have sound capabilities. However, this will work if you have some sound input into the monitor, like if you use the HDMI (which includes sound) to send signals to the monitor, instead of the VGA / DVI connector. (All sound output on a system is from the sound card on the system only, monitor sound options are usually just an extension of the same)
