Re: need to remove dell e193fpc flat panel covers to...
First remove the stand. Then at the bottom of the monitor there are two small openings an inch or two from each edge. Starting there with WIDE flat blade screw driver (or a couple of them) it IS possible to pop the catches that hold the back of the case to the front. You have to go around the case very carefully popping each catch and preventing the areas you have opened from becoming re-latched. I found some wood popsicle sticks good for that.
If you search for "LCD Monitor Repair" you can find sites that have video's of several Dell models (but not this exact one) any that use the "pop open" case are pretty much similar.
One note after you get inside. The power supply board had the WORST solder job I have seen in a long time. The failure in the unit I repaired was due to open solder joints on the hi-voltage transformers taking out the power transistor's that drove them. It took me two months, but I found some replacement transistors on ebay and after resoldering many of the joints on the board it the monitor works fine.
I attribute part of the failure to the use of Lead free solder which is becoming common in all consumer electronics. It makes for brittle connections that fail easily and there is also the issue of tin whisker growth that will hit in a few years down the road.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on: Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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/albums/yy352/budm/ Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
The problem is actually in the CPU and not in the Ram
This happens due to dust in the Ram .In order to fix the problem try removing the Ram from the slot and fix again after cleaning the Ram and the Ram slot . If the problem persists try resetting the Bios by removing battery.
Francois, If you really want to remove the pedestal and then rear plastic cover from the front BEZEL, then why don't you visit YOUTUBE and view some video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to see how to "PART" the cover from the bezel!!! There sure is a lot of stuff to see on YOUTUBE. HINT!!! YOU must protect the LCD PANEL at all times!!! GOOD LUCK, 12fixlouie
chrisc257, Yes, you too, will need to watch some video clips @YOUTUBE !!! Search and view 6 to 10minute clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" and stuff relating to "bad capacitors in lcd monitors" . Are you doing this as a SCHOOL SCIENCE PROJECT that you will be graded on? First remove the pedestal stand from the back cover.(screws or some locking TABS) Then remove screws from back cover. If you can see them. then un-snap the cover from the front bezel. Watch how they do it on youtube and be careful not to injure yourself or the monitor LCD panel.. GOOD LUCK GUY, YOU'RE ON YOU'RE OWN NOW!! 12fixlouie
I have just did this here is the solution for you:
Philips screw driver
Small Flat screwdriver
Make sure your desk is clean and you also need a piece of soft clothes because you need
to place your LCD Monitor face down.
How to open the back cover:
First, remove all screws on the back cover, then, use a small flat head screw driver to
the plastic Clip inside the LCD Monitor star at the bottom of monitor. Then you can easily
separate the front bezel and back cover like the photos shown below.

I used to
repair LCD monitor from Dell. There are 4 screws for rear panel and no screw for
front frame. If there is no visible screw, you have to look for
"capped" screw holes (little covers that fit flush with the case to
hide the screws). If you don't see these neither, this must be a tension fit case.
So, face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side
edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). This will be a challenge to
open without breaking it. You'll need a very thin flat screw driver and wedge
it into that narrow rectangular hole. You can use any prybar if you don't have
screw driver. It is not too deep. You may stab something important inside and
pry it. Once it starts to spread, start sliding it along the seem and you
should feel the tension tabs start "popping" open. Continue to work
your way around until it's off. Hope this will help you to get the rear panel
off. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
