How to mount my monitor on the wall?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've decided to buy the Asus X510A laptop for £230 instead of the Microsoft Surface for £280, meaning I can give my computer to my mum.

I would however like to keep my monitor as she has her own, mine is a Dell 2405FPW.

At the moment I am using the dedicated stand, but I would like to mount it on the wall.

This is the wall bracket I would go for: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LCD201-Wall-Bracket-Swivel-Rotate/dp/B0033AU388/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1374926232&sr=1-4&keywords=monitor+wall+mount

It has a maximum weight of 15kg and my monitor is around 10kg.

My only question is, is my monitor compatible with that wall mount?

Grab a ruler and check if your monitor has the proper mounting holes. thumb.gif




Make sure that your wall is strong enough to support a monitor.

Check your monitor manual for its Vesa compatibility. Or use a ruler and measure the screw distances. As the mount is slightly inset I would not want to try and use a mount with 100x100 and 75x75 holes if the monitors spacing is 75x75 as the overlap would probably inhibit a good fit.

Between the screws is 100mm, I'm guessing that means it's VESA?



The blue wall is hollow, so I'm going to use the solid orange wall. thumb.gif

It means its probably VESA 100. That mount from amazon should work just fine.

Thanks for the help guys! thumbsupsmiley.png


Just remembered, the laptop has a HDMI port and my monitor only has VGA, DVI-D (Dual Link) and Component Video.

Would this be okay? http://www.amazon.co.uk/DIGIFLEX-Female-Converter-Adapter-Connector/dp/B003VR8OZW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1374929843&sr=8-5&keywords=hdmi+to+dvi-d
