i know where some of them might go but i cant figure out where the rest go.
if anyone knows anything about these kind of things... it would mean alot.

gotta love break ups.
its a "A Open"...
it older... but it has a few sticks of ram in it he told me.
and as for the wires they all come out of the main box from top top of the tower...

Sounds like the power supply. Are the wires inside the case? Kind of looks like this?

Not every wire off the power supply will be connected. Have you tried to turn the computer on yet? In order to try and tell you what should be connected we will need to know whats in the computer. If the computer was built at a computer store you will need to try and locate the make and model of the motherboard. If it is an actual Aopen computer we will need a make and model number. Try turning it on first and see if it works.

Any labels on the front or back? Model number or anything else like that?

It may have been built special for you or it could be DELL or HP or something like that.

Here is a link:

that will lead you through a step by step. From this maybe you can figure out what each device needs. Power and Data.
