Question

Attach Dell st2220m using Vesa

I wish to use a VESA stand to hold a DELL ST2220m monitor. Naturally, the monitor doesn't have VESA holes on the back. Can I remove the Dell symbol on back and either drill into it or glue a 5x5 piece of 1/2" board to it and then drill the wood? Prefer not to spend $40 for bracket on eBay.

Thanks,
RON C

ST2220m construction

Bob,

Thanks for your response.

FYI Postage is $12 so close $35.

I'm aware I can do what I want but really wonder if anyone had experience/knowledge of how monitor is constructed.

To answer that head to youtube

And type in your model number and then the word disassembly. If you're lucky someone has opened it up.
