How to Remove the Base of an Acer Monitor

By Jared Huizenga

Maybe you need to make some extra space in your small home office or you’re looking for a different look and want to mount your Acer computer monitor. No matter the reason, your Acer computer monitor can be mounted on a wall like a flat-screen TV. In order to do this, however, you must remove the base from the monitor. To remove the base, you don’t need any tools--just a flat, sturdy surface and something to protect the screen.

Things You'll Need

  • Table
  • Towel, blanket or soft cloth

Step 1

Turn the power off on your Acer computer monitor.

Step 2

Unplug all cables running into your Acer monitor--including the power cable and cables connecting it to your computer.

Step 3

Lay a towel, blanket or some sort of soft cloth down on the table. This will help protect your Acer monitor from scratches or damage.

Step 4

Lay your Acer monitor face down on the towel.

Step 5

Press the release button on your Acer monitor and slide the base out from the monitor. The release button is located near the bottom of the monitor, where the base and the monitor meet.
