This is my computer. http://h10025.www1.h...amp;rule=38743#
I was pulling out random cords out from the motherboard in order for me to put a stick of ram in it.
Now I don't know how to put it back in.
In Figure 2: Photograph, that white slot next to the blue thingy. i don't know where to put that in.
I'm having trouble with my floppy disk drive.
Some of the stuff is connected to my dvd drive as well.
it's all swapped around so I don';t know what to do!

Majority of the connections are either keyed or colour coded. You would be very unlikely to plug something in wrong.

Floppy drive I wouldn't even worry about it. If you don't use it it's no loss.
You may not the "white slot next to the blue thingy".

Ideally would need to see what you've already pulled out and what you're got left to connect.

that white slot next to the blue thingy.

The white slot is ide2.
The blue slot is ide1. Look at the previous picture and it tells you.

Ide1 would be your hard disk.
Ide2 could be your CD drive/DVD drive.
Usually hard drives are on a cable by themselves and CD drives are on the other cable (ide2).
The floppy plugs in to the very bottom of the board.
