Two loose black wires

HP Recommended

Hi, I was trying to change my video card and while I was playing around with it I noticed two black wires with tiny copper ends come loose. I am not sure if they were even attached to anything. Do you know if and where these two wires should be attached to? I did see a similar question but they seemed more attached to the black piece pcie x1 than the card beside it.  Please let me know. Thank you!

Those wires attach to the wireless card which is the rectangular object with the white label in your screen shot.


You can see where the antenna connectors go to on the upper right side of the wifi card.
