the area that is green is for the power led,red is for the IDE led,yellow is for the power switch and blue is for the reset button. if your leds dont light just reverse the connection in the same colored area, all the positive connections should have a white plus sign,and the wires on your case should be labeled.

Actually the problem was that the manufacture screwed up the wiring or labeled the wires wrong so they were just backwards, but thanks for the help
