Ouch...not good.

If it uses a four pin molex connector like I think it does, you may be up a creek. Since these go directly into the power supply, you will not be able to replace them. However, you could conisder getting a adaptor that will split one of the existing molex connectors into two, and that *should* solve your problem.
