Dual Monitor Stand Issue

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I recently purchased a dual monitor stand, everything went through smoothly, until it came time to mount the monitors. I ended up making a big mistake and not checked out my monitor (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236305), which does not come with the four mounting screw holes. Is there a way that I can mount this monitor on the stand, I am even willing to open it (If possible), to make it work.

not unless you drill holes into the back plate and somehow mount the monitor i don't think you can.
Small wonder.

I was just on the site and it said this about the monitor:


"Stylish and User-friendly Design for Modern Sophistication

Convenient key controls for functional set-up in the multi-language OSD.
Easily detachable base for wall mount.
VESA Wall Mount Standard (100 x 100 mm ).
25° ( forward 5°, backwards 20° )Tilting Angle.
KENSINGTON Security Lock."

What does this mean?

I don't see that at all

This is where I saw it. So I want to drill some holes on the back of the monitor and use nuts and bolts (With some washers), to hold it into place but I want to know how to open this monitor first.

Foam double-side tape. Don't drill holes in your monitor, they'll pull right out under that much weight. Follow the instructions for the tape. If it says clean surfaces with 50/50 alcohol/water, do it. If it says let cure overnight before hanging, do it. The tape will pull right off if you don't follow the instructions.
APU what?

Yes I do realize you don't want to drill holes into your monitor which was a joke btw lol tongue.gif

Yea that UK website I guess isn't updated.

Also what Cavi Mike said would be pretty viable. Just having my monitor hanging by tape would be pretty nerve wracking plus if your room ever got pretty hot it would fall.

Yeah it would be much to risky to do it with double sided tape, I live in New York and it gets very hot in the summer and if I cant remove the entire stand then it would defeat the purpose of mounting it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, if I can sell this monitor, what would be a good monitor for me to buy that I can mount of course, between the price of 200-220 USD.

Most likely a Dell IPS... I mean There are plenty of other monitors out there most of the major players would be good as well I like to go to actual stores and look at monitors before i buy to see if i like the ascetics and colors.

Well I never have been in favor of aesthetics, always in favor of performance (Which is why my cpu cooler is brown and my PC is loud). I was looking at the Dell IPS and while they are good, they are also very expensive and well outside my price range.
