Default Wow, thought i knew, but umm....

okay, today i just got in my computer setup. the components i got are as follows:

-Aspire(Turbo Case)X-Dreamer Black Mid-Tower Case with 350W Power
-ASUS BLACK 52X CD-ROM DRIVE
-PANASONIC JU-256A-198P Black 3.5inch Floppy Disk Drive
-Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 - OEM
-Asus nForce2 Ultra 400 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket A CPU, Model "A7N8X-X
-AMD Athlon XP 2600+ "Barton", 333MHz FSB, 512K Cache Processor - OEM
-PowerColor R96-D3G ATI R9600Pro 256MB DDR 8X AGP Video Card

well to say the least. im very confused. the case that i purchased came with the led temperature gauge and two led fans. my old pc had nothing like this. just one fan. anyways, im getting very confused on where to attach things. ive gotten the temperature gauge to light up and give me a reading and ive installaled the mobo got the video card in the agp slot i have the processor in and also the floppy and cd rom drive and the hard drive sitting to the side. ive connected things a few times and tried to start it up. both fans will turn on, but one will not light up, the other will the hard drive will start making a little noise and the temperature gauge will come on and then about 2 seconds later it will shut off. i have a 350 power supply, i thought it would be enough, maybe not though. im just kinda loss to what to do now. maybe i really just have no idea where to put anything in this case the right way. so i took some pictures, not the best but maybe you can tell me where each one goes in the sequence they should be put at. thanks to any help you can give me.

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0650.jpg - the whole setup as of now

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0653.jpg plugs to the fan. being two fans there is two sets of these

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0654.jpg main power. pretty sure thats right considering things will turn on

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0656.jpg connections for switches and leds. think its correct cause it turns on for a short time.

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0657.jpg pretty sure these connect to the cd rom floppy but what else, seems like some are left over after i plug stuff in.

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0658.jpg still can't figure where to put these

http://www.geocities.com/xxoriginxx/dscn0659.jpg this might have been powering the temperature gauge. can't really remember so confused

as for the large fat flat wiring that runs from the hard drive to mobo then some runs from the cd rom and the floppy i found where the floppy is supposedly supposed to go but as far as the hard drive it makes it unclear as to where to place the wires for the right connection setup. thanks again. sorry this was so long and stupid.

bump to the top.

also i found a white wire that had a plastic see through tube on it for protecting it. the end of it is flat and kinda a brownish orange. doesn't look like it could connect to anything but can anyone tell me what that is?
