Use a stud detector as shown in the link below. ... 071&m=1228

Otherwise you need to rely on tapping the surface for different sounds which at best is a shot in the dark, or making a series of holes until you find the studs. Filling these holes, however small, always ends up costing more than the stud detector especially when you considerr the time involved.
