Is the hump or box surrounding the dvi/vga connector molded as one piece to the rest of the back? Try going around it with a utility knife to see if there is a gap you can get in to start feeling around for the tabs you have to press to release the shell. If not, on the bigger back panel, if you have all the visible screws taken out around the edges, go around the seam to see where the tabs are locking the panel in place. You might need a whole bunch of screwdrivers or wedges to keep the seam open as you go around probing and prying away the rest of the tabs. Use a flashlight to see if there is anything there. Don't get too hung up if you break a tab or two while trying to open it. Put masking tape around the whole thing if you are worried about scratches. Good luck.
