Question about IBM ThinkVision L170 17" LCD Monitor
I used to repair monitor from Dell. There are 4 screws for rear panel and no screw for 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, face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). 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. The lamps should be located horizontally along the screen edge top and bottom. you might not see the whole lamps after opening the screen's back cover but you can pull it out from the lamp case. It has 2 electric wires connected to the end of the lamps.

The inverter module is bad or the back light behind the LCD screen has stopped working, I would suggest an estimate if you decide to have it repaired.
