    OEMs tend to hide screws behind stickers/pads/etc, have you tried taking stuff like that off and checking for hidden screws?
    Also, it probably has some kind of snapping mechanism that holds them together, try running something between the front and back section to try to unhook stuff like that. Not too hard though, cause else you'll break things.

    It may have clips around the edges.

    most of them (at least the broken ones i've opened) have indeed some sort of clips alongside of the edges on the inside of the housing of the monitor

    it will have clips if there are no more screws, best way to get it off is with the same method you remove a bicycle tire. Otherwise youll find they snap right back into place.

    Try to find an old sturdy pocketknife or use a small flat head screwdriver to get inbetween the plastic pieces and run it along the edge until you pop the clips. You will be able to tell where there are clips because the plastic will be held together really good in that location, then using a prying motion just pop the clip.

    Once apart the panel should just pop right back together, but if not that is also what those screws are probably for.
