I need to open up this dell 1704FPT monitor but can only get the sides to "pop" open. The four corners seem to be intent on not coming apart. If anyone can lend some advice that would be great. Thanks in advance!

yes you can use the usb port but let me tell you one thing very clearly there is problem with these ports either they dont recognize your usb or maybe your monitor screen flickers... so use monitor port with a lot of care and i advised you to atlest read the manual before you do anything.
First you need to troubleshoot a little.
You should first try another power cable for the monitor, if that doesn't help, you might be able to open up the monitor case and check wether the button is broken.
If the button is broken, you're going to have to improvise a new one, since new buttons aren't really being sold.
If that isn't the case, or if you can't open up the monitor, take it to computer shop, these things are easier to fix if you can look at it.
I hope this helps,
You can turn counter-clockwise the screwz at the back cover of your monitor to open it & check if the power button is loose or defective, even notice if some internal part/s are cold soldered / defective. However, if it's still under Warranty, I recommend to bring the unit to an authorized service center for a Free service check-up & replacement part/s. best regards
Remove the stand, look along the bottom edge - you will see two small slots, one either side. Poke something in the slots and wiggle slighly, the corner will come apart - then just pull until all the clips undo.
-Flip the LCD face down and remove the screws that hold the base in place.
-looking at the top edge of the LCD monitor you should see a small notch on each end between the front bezel and the back cover.
-Using a plastic tool or a flat blade screw driver insert the tip and gently pop the case open.
-Work your way around the edge of the case.
-Once the LCD monitor is open unplug the control panel connector from the right side and remove the front bezel.
