thanks I did not realize there were standards for mountings.

I would think that if you take the 4 screws out the stand should come off. You are lucky to have them exposed as some monitors have a tricky cover plate. You will need to buy a wall mount, and the more expensive ones will have more adjustments like pivot and tilt, extention arm, etc. The holes should match a standard VESA configuration to match a standard LCD panel mount. Hopefully your mount will come with the 10mm or whatever the metric screws it takes to remount the panel. Follow the instructions to mount it to a stud in the wall. I did it to my 20 inch LCD and it frees up the space under it. Good luck.
> holes should match a standard VESA configuration . I didn't realize there were standards for such things as the mounting plate. That should make fabricating a plate unnecessary and the rest of the job much easier.

OK, I should have taken my own. So I have attached one here. So you think the 4 screws can just be taken out? Also, how would you wall mount it?
. As far as I can tell, that's the same setup as on mine. I just have a different base. . I'm pretty sure that's all you need to do, but check the manual first to make sure those screws aren't holding something on the inside. . I'd build a plate, same size as the one you remove and attach that plate to the wall mount. . You may be able to leave the plate screwed on and disassemble the hinge. Might make it easier to attach to the wall mount. Check the manual for disassembly instructions.

Well, you can certainly remove the existing stand. And This chart says it's a vesa-compatible mount...

. No shots of the back. :( . Go to Dell's web site and get the manual(s) for your monitor. They should tell you what you need to know. . On my Dell E193FP, there are four screws that hold the stand onto the back of the monitor.
