Default help building computer

hello,

i am building a custom computer and i need some help. In front of the case, there is a small black and white screen, with a green led for power. there is a standard power cable coming out of the back of this, which i plugged in to my powersupply. There is also a white and orange thin cable that comes from the same spot as the led and screen. I plugged this into my motherboard, as the manual instructed me to. everything appears to be ok, but it wont turn on. any help? much appreciated.
