I got this monitor last week and I've mounted it on my wall today. There's just one problem though - the stand is still attached. Does anyone know how to remove it? I've removed the base of the stand, but the stem's still there! I've unscrewed the screws in there, but this appears to have done nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Those little tabs need to pressed in the direction of the arrow while you pull the base away from the monitor. It is EXTREMELY difficult and I had to get someone to help me out to do it. Be careful not to snap anything but at the same time if your too afraid to apply pressure your not going to get it loose. :/

Wow, I have this monitor too, and I took a quick look.....don't know what to say.

Very confusing, but there must be a way.

Did you ever solve this? I just got one of these monitors last week and I really need to take the stand off as well. A google search about the issue led me to this forum. It would be really helpful if you happened to have come up with anything. ACER is almost impossible to reach. I like the monitor otherwise but may have to return it if this isn't gonna happen.

Thanks.

Okay for anyone who still needs info on this, I just got off the phone with ACER. It's VERY easy as it turns out. The "cowling" or plastic cover over the hinge where the stand enters the back of the monitor just LOOKS like it's part of the back of the monitor. It actually pops right off if you just squeeze the sides of it, fit your fingernail under the edge and POP it right off. I really thought it was part of the back of the monitor, but it's not. Once it pops off you'll see 4 screws. The rest is self explanatory. You don't even need to take the based of the stand off, it has nothing to do with the 2 screws inside there.

Hope this helps if anyone's stuck with the same issue.

Hi MarkB. I am *THIS* close to buying the monitor but it will be the new updated version Acer AL1917WAbd. Looks roughly the same except this one has built in speakers. Anyway, what would you say the chances are that the stand can be removed from *THIS* new model, like it can with the Acer AL1916WAbd?

All Acer monitors have the same stand.
Snap off the cover on the back of the monitor. It appears to be attached to the monitor, but it's not. It just covers the pivot. It is long and has six snap points to the back of the monitor. I got my loose by playing around with a flat head screwdriver. Underneath are four screens.

I just purchased an acer 22" lcd monitor, I installed it to my wall without removing the stand (stem) which I couldn't figure out. After a google search I found this forum and now I've removed the stand completely. Thanks MARK B

AL1917W A04
I just removed the stem from the base and yes it is difficult.
I didn't want to hang it (yet). I wanted to put it back in the box.

Remove the stem and base from the back of the monitor using the 4 black screws under the snap-off cover at the top of the stem. This makes the base easier to manipulate and saves the LCD monitor from damage during later exertions.

Remove the metal plate from the bottom using the 2 silver screws.

Use a tool that allows COMPLETE contact across the surface of each tab. Make one from a block of wood if you have to. I was lucky and had a nylon technicians tool with a square handle.

1. Push gently on all 8 tabs [3 on each side, 1 on each end]. See which ones move. If any move far enough to click, leave them until later.
2. Repeat step 1 with remaining tabs, pushing harder each time. Eventually you will have moved all 8 tabs enough to 'unlatch' them. Don't worry if they move back.
3. Now work in a circle until you have all 8 unlatched at the same time.
4. Slide stem up and off of base.
5. re-attach stem to back of monitor or just replace the black screws in the back of the monitor for safekeeping and snap the cover back on.
6. replace the metal plate on the bottom of the base.

What do you recommend for hanging? I see the 4 screw holes in the back. Is there a wall bracket available?

Hi MarkB, if you're still around. I just want to say a big big thank-you!
I spent about 20 minutes struggling to remove the damn stand from an Acer.
Afraid I break or crack the case or worse LCD.
Read the manual - no help. Search the web - no help. Until I found your post.
Done in 2 secs!!

Thanks man!

I just managed to remove the stand of my monitor courtesy this forum. I was getting frustrated and trying to push the tabs on the bottom as instructed in the manual. I've uploaded some photos here to illustrate the process:

Hey there... I have an Acer Monitor, Model X223W and I'm having the same problem. I think I know what you guys are talking about, but not sure... There is the top part to that "stem" (the base fits up into) that I think is what I should pry off... But, so nervous... Does that sound right?

Acer basically said I would have to figure it out on my own... I bought two of them and now can't mount them on my stand like I had intended...

Any help will be so much appreciated!

Thank you MarkB!
I was just so frustrated with ACER and with trying to remove the monitor stand ... you were right! The back (top of base) pops off, even though it looks like it is permanently attached, and there are 4 screws there connecting the stand.
My base is off and I am so grateful.

I know this is an old post, but if you're still out there...
Do you still have those pictures? And do you know if the same instructions would apply to an Acer X233H? I am trying to help out a client/friend, and his monitor stand is driving him crazy! Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

The stand on the X233H does come off easy ... once you learn the trick. I laid the monitor on it's face and reached across, behind the base of the stand where it connects to the back of the monitor, and pryed the covers off. The two covers are normaly flush with the back of the monitor, and create  a tight fit all the way around, but have a little bump on the inner sides to allow the stand bracket to exit. Once those covers (about 1.25" x 1.25" each) are off you are four philips head screws away from stand-less bliss.

I had an HP stand that fit the VESA mounting holes, but is much more adjustable in terms of height tilt.

Does anyone out there have an old monitor stand that will fit an Acer H243H that they have removed, don't need, and not thrown away yet? I broke the horizontal base part on mine when it tipped over and cannot find a replacement anywhere. I'd be happy to pay you something for it, of course. Thanks!

Sorry Bob, no spare stand, but to everyone else thanks for this thread. I just got the base off my AL1706 using the hints here. Some additional info that may help: use your screwdriver first on the two tabs that are at the bottom of the upside down "U" shaped cover - if you get those 2 loose the whole thing comes right off. Also, the four screws that hold the base on are perfect size for the four mounting holes in the centre of the monitor back if you want to put the monitor onto a swing arm or something.
