How to Remove the Base of an Acer Monitor

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.
