Please post a photo of these wires and once approved, we identify where they go.
In the mean time... a flat cable (maybe red or black) from the CD/DVD drive would go to one of the SATA ports on the motherboard and a multi-colored bundle of wires from the CPU heatsink/fan would go to the CPU_FAN1 connector

I will try to post a picture. Both wires are flat and black. I've tried putting the one from the cd/DVD in a one of The four different colors that are grouped together. The black flat wire coming from processor, I'm also putting into one of the colored inserts. I'm playing guessing games at this point. Computer is new and hp support had me disconnect, but I did it buy feeling, couldn't see the inside until later with a flashlight. Obviously they are not in the right color insert, CD recovery disc won't load until I get them in the right plug. They are the only black flat wires I found, thought it would be easy to put them back on the motherboard.
