For some reason, the person who I bought this monitor from disassembled the stand. It appears to slide in with 2 bent "legs" and then just snap in with 3 prongs on the back of the monitor sliding into the stand.
But I cannot snap it in there for the life of me. Any suggestions?

Re: snapping monitor into stand
You slide in the 2 bent legs, then it doesnt snap. there are supposed to be 2 screws that hold it into place on the top portion of the stand. Find the correct screw size and your stand should keep your monitor up.

chrisc257, Yes, you too, will need to watch some video clips @YOUTUBE !!! Search and view 6 to 10minute clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" and stuff relating to "bad capacitors in lcd monitors" . Are you doing this as a SCHOOL SCIENCE PROJECT that you will be graded on? First remove the pedestal stand from the back cover.(screws or some locking TABS) Then remove screws from back cover. If you can see them. then un-snap the cover from the front bezel. Watch how they do it on youtube and be careful not to injure yourself or the monitor LCD panel.. GOOD LUCK GUY, YOU'RE ON YOU'RE OWN NOW!! 12fixlouie
On the rear of the monitor stand, just 1/2" above the word "Acer", is a rectangular button. push it in and pull the stand off . If you need to remove the rectangular tube, there are two snap on covers, one on each side of the tube. Pop them off and remove the screws underneath. That's it.
i have the same problem with the AL1717. After hours figuring it out, i found the solution.. if you slide off the cover holding the back arm, you will expose the screws holding the arm which you can screw off to take off the back arm....
the cover can easily slide off as it is only 'clicked' into place.... gently put your fingers on the cover apply some pressure to slide it out...
The proview trims have to be slid upwards to remove them once the 4 screws are out of the bottom.
You'll need to lift the top part slighty away from the lcd to allow the sides to slide up.
If you don't slide it , then yes, you'll break tabs.
I have the same problem and I hate to admit it but I'm on the verge of putting a blade in my hand held router and cutting the plastic away. I don't want to do that since maybe I may need the mount someday, but...
The ones I take apart have a snap on front bezel. gently pry at the lcd edge with fingers in center left or right to get it to bow , dont damage the lcd with too much pressure. it will start to separate ,put a plastic knife or such in the outside crack and work your way around once you have one side the rest will be easier. you have to bow the inside edge out(away from the lcd) because of the plastic clips. luck.
These are a snap to open.
Put a towel on a flat surface like the dining table.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the stand in and slide the stand out of the hole.
Remove the screw in each of the 2 bottom corners.
Remove the screw in the middle at the bottom (it was under the stand to begin with but some do not have it for some reason.)
Now comes the easy part.
Put a few fingers onto the section the power plug goes into.
Tuck your thumbs into the hole left by the stand.
Push into the power plug section downwards with your fingers at the same time pull upwards with your thumbs. The rear panel should pop up. Gently pop it all around the edges.
