The problem you're running into is that Dell uses proprietary parts,like quite a few manufacturers still do.The board you bought should have come with a manual on a CD or DVD.You can look through the manual and see what the connections are,they're even printed,usually,on the board beside each set of pins.It's very small print. What you have going for you is that the Dell multi-plug is also labeled as to what wires are for each application.You'll have to cut the plug off and put individual connectors on each wire,then connect them to the corresponding pins.You can get the parts at an electronic supply store,even Radio Shack. Just be careful,and make sure that if your hands are inside the case,the cord is unplugged. Bob

Ribbons you should have 2 one for the cd rom drives and one for the harddrives, Look closley on the borad and it will say next to the connector which is which, the ata one will go to the harddrive and the ide one will go to the cd rom drive the end that only has one connector goes into the borad, the one with 2 connectors kinda close goes into the compoents, DO you have more than one hd if so you may need to find out which one is the master and which is the slave!
this is typical, there's a new virus that overwrites the dns server details and the only fix for this problem is either to waste hours recovering dns or doing a clean installation will fix it. "clean installation means format the hard drive, and re-install your operating system"
