Specs: Windows XP
Hey this is my first time building a PC. I got a 450watt power supply, 250gb harddrive, 8800nvidia video card and an audio sound blaster sound card. Im not completly sure i hooked the wires up because it was very complicated from the guide being my first time. anyways i hooked everything up best i thought and hooked the 24 pin thing in and the lights came on [on the motherboard] i pushed the power and nothing happened at all. :/

ive plugged both into the first 2 pins also the first set of jumpers has a 1 then no pin 1 1 and the next set has 1 1 1 this right? or is this messed up because i cant have the default 1 1 pins in because theyres a space and also i thought theyre were only 3 this one was 4 with one missing.
