If you can find the speaker pins on the motherboard, which
should probably be right with the rest of the pin-outs to the front
panel switches, there should be no problem. If there's no mounting
point for a speaker, maybe some of that double-sided foam tape used to
hang pictures, and trying to direct it at any vent openings in the case.
Anyway, it should be clearly marked on the motherboard in microscopic
white letters, so even a sighted person may need a good magnifying glass
to read it. HTH,
