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.

. 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.
