Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

How do you remove the base from the hpvs17

I am trying to open a hpvs17 lcd monitor. How do you remove the base from the body of the monitor? I am stymied by 1 screw which holds the tilting mechanism to the monitor and is not accesible. It is obvious that hp made this intentionally difficult. It appears that the base must be disassembled to remove it. I removed the metal baselate. This exposed plastic tabs which, when squeezed, allowed removal of the round plastic base. The remaining part of the base upright appears to lock into the screen tilting mechanism by 5 plastic tabs in 3 compartments that must be depressed simultaneously to disengage the two parts. Is this correct? Did those pinheads who earn their pay by designing their products to be difficult to access really do something so monumentally stupid (which they probably consider clever)? How do I circumvent this despicable design?

I have a HPvs17 flat screen monitor connected to a hp pavilion a520n. How do I turn on the speakers?

jcdiekfuss, First verify that you have audio signal coming out of the light-green audio-out "jack on the PC!! Use an external pair of "wall-wart" powered speakers to verify. Notify me of result. You can also try to "feed" low-level audio from a radio or CD player "ear-bud" jack to the LCD monitor's audio input jack for testing purposes. Good luck. 12fixlouie

How can i open the body or case to repair of hp vp15 lcd monitor

well being as how i just did this five minutes ago I can help:) The back of the monitor has a thin panel like a sideways 8 or a bean shape...this pops off then you have to take out the screws holding on the base once you get that off you can lay the monitor flat <carefully> and pop the outer black frame off <every so often along the seam you will see little gaps stick a thin flathead in if it's to tight for you carefully not to scratch or break it is plastic!> then you will see the metal case and find the screws on the sides and your there! Good luck!
