Is it safe to plug it in if the square and D-shaped don't match? I googled it and people say if it slides in without forcing then it's okay. Mine slides in very easily. These are the two components I have. They are the two components I have.

There are two FFD (4P) (Y-adapter) which should be used for the ATX 12V power.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Looks like my problem was Windows wasn't fully updated and the drivers finally installed.  Got many errors but everything runs perfectly now.  Looks like the plug works even though the shape didn't match, pretty weird but it works finally.
