The internal speaker plugs into the motherboard.
Have tried pluggin in speakers but still hear no beeps.
Is it possible to get your hands on a cheap PCI-E video card? It has the slot for one.
Monitor: Power with solid green light but nothing on screen

The solder traces are awfully thin, especially on a multilayer board
I don't think I"m going to try bending the motheboard even if it is dead.

Agreed with all of the above. A motherboard should post in any condition and provide the diagnostic beep for the faulty component. A non posting motherboard IME (In My Experience) means a bad one. One tip I can give to anyone working on computers for friends (depending on how close they are) is to charge a minimal diagnostic charge to cover restocking fee's in case your wrong (shhh its a trade secret). To start try and get the board to beep naked then add components until something goes awry. And a tip that I just learned by researching my answer is never trust that anything is good. Test the power supply
( you did that ) test the speaker ( A Voltmeeter on the continuity test should work) If both check out you should get a beep code stating what component failed the POST test. No Beep bad motherboard. And lastly alot of new motherboards come with tiny speakers that are great to hang onto for testing purposes.
