16" center studs depend on geographical location and year of build.

Then get someone to do it for you. A 37" tv weighs quite a bit and if that comes crashing down.... Also like I said before, you need a TV wall mount kit.

anyone know a decent TV-wall kit that isnt going to put a hole in my wallet?
Okay, what does the monitor weigh? How old is the house and where do you live?

There are some decent wall mount kits at BB, CC, CompUsa and online. Your choice. the cheap ones are non adjustable as to angle. I would reccomend going with one that at least tilts up and down if not sided to side--

Finding the studs is not that hard--either a stud finder or the old trick of using a small finish nail and poking alon with a nail and hammer unil you hit one...then measure over either 16 or 24 and poke again. If you hiuwood that's what you want. Mrk those two locations and Put up the mount. if they studs are not in a convenient location use a backer board (a piece of ply or wood that is the width of the mount) and mount the backing board to the studs and then the mount to the board.

Don't worry about the holes...

You need to go with a wall mount and on stud bolts.

If wall mount units seem to spendy check out your local Good Will/etc.
I found a $178 42" Hitachi mount unused for $7 and sold/mounted it for $20.

They rarely come with the appropriate bolts for the job, but you could get lucky with the right manufacturer.

And at $7.00 for a $178 unit new in the box and unused, though not a common find, I can afford to be homeless too. Just saying it pays to shop around.
