Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
My power button broke free and in case you're still trying, I was just successful with this hint on my 19" version of this monitor. I used two small screwdrivers, and with the monitor face-down on a pillow, I started with the left notch (near the kensington lock hole). The secret trick was to pry the notch with the first screw driver, hold it with my right hand, then take the second screwdriver and push in just to the left of that gap, and the first "catching-mechanism" popped free, releasing the whole corner. Continue working your way around, but pushing in to release the next catches, not so much twisting (less tearing up your monitor that way, too) - four across the top and bottom, three along the edges. Unfortunately, I do not have a way to post pictures.

On my similar Dell 19 inch LCD Monitor, E196FPf, there are 4 screws on the back, and you need to pry off the plastic bezel from the front. At the bottom of the bezel are 4 small slots where you can start prying carefully with a screwdriver.

Here is a pic of the monitor's bottom tabs after unlatching them. I had to clean the inside of the monitor after soda got inside the cracks and messed with the functionality of the power button. The first tab was difficult to unlatch, but after that you can just slide a knife or screwdriver along the seam and the other tabs will pop out when you get to them.
NOTE: This is an E196FPf monitor. (For reference to any future help-seekers, the number can be found on the back of the monitor after removing the stand.)
