IdeaCenter B540 - Backstand won't open out.

User Guide for B3/B5 Series shows back stand as capable of rotation to allow 15 - 40 degree angle from vertical. I can only rotate to about 10 degrees from vertical. Any attempt to force beyond that point meets so much resistance that i fear the unit will just break, or be pulled away from the computer. Has anyone else encountered this issue??

I have this same problem where the computer stand doesn't open up so I can tilt the monitor.  can you be more specific with your answer, I don't understand your solution. Thanks.

Re: IdeaCenter B540 - Backstand won't open out.

With how elegant the 720 stand is,  the m540p stand just seems so clumsy... every time I try to move them in the stores I think im going to break it.   I'm looking at lesser configed units though, theres only one in the stores, an i3 with windows 8.

Caveman, the stand will not budge past 3 to 4 inches. I have tried hard but stopped before I break something. I found a latch underneath that helps remove the stand for wall-mounting but nothing so far helps. Is there a possibility of the stand being defective??

I  have this same problem, it won't budge passed 15 degrees! The plastic is starting to bend the harder I pull. I think it is defective..

It's very hard and at first you might think that you'll be breaking the stand but keep on bending the stand till it snap to the next angle. It won't break. Trust me. I thought it would but it did not.
