I am not sure why someone would explain how to open a DELL monitor when the question was an X2GEN monitor.
I know how to do this properly. The one I have is an X2GEN 19" MG19VT. I wish someone would have known what I know now so I would not have had to mark up the plastic. There are two screws on the back towards the bottom. Take those out and all you have to do is slide the whole plastic front part UP and it will come off.

Hi, I used to fix a monitor from Dell. There are 4 screws at rear panel and no screw at the 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, just 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 helps you to open you monitor. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Tan

X2gen monitor power and all other front panel switches do not respond. i.e. power auto mute menu etc.. which caps do i need to replace to cure/


Robert,
Did you try opening the lcd ? all those switches connect to the power supply. I would go ahead and check and trace the switches with cabling to the power supply.
I just replace some transistors on 2 of these (22") and they work like a charm.

Do you need a special driver for x2Gen 22 inch monitor with windows 7


You do not need drivers for monitor, just make sure you set the resolution output of your video card to the monitor native resolution and set the refresh rate to 60Hz. Make sure you do have win7 driver for your video card.

Monitor shows picture for 1/2 second then goes black, 22" display. also will not show display menus. have hooked another monitor up and works fine. also have hooked up to another computor and problem...


When you switch the monitors, do you still use the very same vga cable? If you don't, then it's time to change the monitor. When it turns on and off inmediately it means that it's receiving the signal, but that's it. If it's brand new, exchange it.

X2GEN CAPACITOR LOCATION


I had the same problem with my 22" X2Gen, first the monitor started what looked like a random color temperature shift, ie the screen would switch between a yellowish and blueish tint, then it wouldn't turn on and the amber standy by light flashed on and off. I took it apart and replaced the 2 220uF25V capicators with 2 220uF35V caps I got at radio shack, part number 272-1029. Don't worry about the voltage mismatch I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter, the voltage is the maximum the cap can withstand and has nothing to do with the voltage in the circuit. The caps are located on the board that the AC cord plugs directly into, it has a plastic (almost feels like paper) sheild, the caps are marked C812 and C813 on the circuit board. There was no 47uF35V cap that I could find, anyway replacing the two did the trick, all for under $3, I almost went out and bought a new monitor ;) Hope that helps.
