Do you have ANY power at all going to your video card? If no, plug it in. If you can't find the right connector, you bought the wrong power supply. Did it say "PCI-E compatable" or something to that effect?

Are you sure you have a SATA HDD? The way you explain it sounds like you have the optical drive and HDD on the same cable, and if so, your HDD would be IDE, not SATA. Personally, i take out the jumpers on my optical drives. You can always put the jumper on the CS (or Cable Select) pins.

About the wires, i'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean extra wires came with the PSU that were not supposed to be with it?
