I would need more information on your PC but this is what I think you're talking about:

You should have two cables connected to the CD\DVD drive and the hard drive. One of these cables is the data cable and the other would be the power cable. The data cable would be a smaller cable connecting to the hard drive and to one of the Sata ports on the motherboard while the power cable would come from the power supply and connect to the Sata hard drive.

This would be the same for the CD\DVD drive. This only applies if these are Sata drives and not the older IDE drives.

The Sata connectors have a L shape design on one end so they cannot be inserted in the wrong polarity.

You may not need all the power cables coming from the power supply as some may be for any added drives that you may not have.

If the power cable is disconnected from the hard drive, the system would not boot. You might want to check the memory modules also, to make sure you have them inserted in the slots completely.

I have nothing to plug p3 and p4 into when all on no signal


Sometimes if a VGA cable is not screwed into to both your Tower and your Monitor, it can get loose and thus resulting in no signal.
Another cause of a Monitor Displaying the no signal message would be due to the Graphic Card failing, or possibly due to the Graphic Card not correctly being seated.

Other Thoughts
--------------------
Usually P3 and P4 refers to a cable on your power supply that needs to be attach to your motherboard to supply extra power.

Note:
If your P4 cable is not plugged in before turning on your computer, this will also result in your Monitor displaying the no signal message.
Keep in mind though, if your computer has not been opened or is not a custom built PC, you should not have to worry about such issues as your P4 cable should in theory be connected. However I guess safely checking won't hurt anyone.

How to use a P3 power supply with a P4 or newer motherboard.


Well its fairly simple, You need the following cable to convert your P3 power supply into P4 power supply.

The pictures pretty much explain every thing, this is the only plug that is not present on a P3 power supply. You can make this cable your self by salvaging connectors from non-working power supplies and other computer peripherals. The connections are straight forward just connect both the yellow wires to the single yellow wire and the black wires to the black wires and your done.

Dvd/cd drive problems


I think it is desktop DVD ROM. P3, P4, P5 are power connectors for HDD and DVD.

Upside down the DVDROM. you can see 4 screws there. remove the screws. Open the tray using a small hole in the front panel. You can easily remove the top panel now.

Replacement


you should be able to use the same HDD, Floppy drive & CDrom drives, You should be able to use the case, if it has a removable plate for the outputs as they will most certainly differ from your original mobo. However you need to check your PSU as the P4 has a requirement for a 4pin 12 volt line which is not present on the older PSUs, however you can get a new PSU and fit it into your case for about £30-£40 Your P4 motherboard is also unlikely to use the same RAM as your P3 so that will need to be replaced. (as it will be incompatible with the new processor)
