Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
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.
