As with all monitors which are flat screen types, you need a couple of tools for the job. First a Phillips head screw driver to remove the screws from the mounting pillar and any case screws. Second you need something like a small putty knife (plastic if you can find one (cheapies at Lowes or Home Depot for example).

The case is opened by sliding the putty knife between the front and rear case halves angling from the rear to the front to gently rock the case latches loose on the inside where you can not see them, working your way along the case sides, either clockwise or counterclockwise around the screen perimeter.. just make your way around, one latch at a time.. Also, do not pull the halves apart as you make you way or you risk either rounding the latches off or breaking them all-together while disconnecting them. Be careful around the bottom front since this is where the control keys are normally located for the monitor (on-off-menu-etc.). The controls should come off with the front half, and the cables are usually pretty tiny and fragile - FYI. Once you get inside, you will see the power supply mounted to the back of the screen assembly. At this point it you should be back in normal looking territory once again to begin whatever repair you are after now. To put back together, you simply "snap" the two halves back together (you will hear the obvious "clicks" which indicate the latches are snapped into place once again (going together is much easier than taking apart, so be sure all is working before putting back together.. just sayin').
We professionals use a glorified putty knife affectionately known as a "MAC-cracker", which was sent out to service people working on the old Apple systems which were snapped together like this a long time ago.

My w17e monitor says "input not supported"

Not quite sure what the question is that you have not already answered for yourself.
That monitor's maximum resolution is given as 1440 X 900 at 60Hz and installing a more powerful video card won't change that.;psum
