Case LEDs not lighting up

Hello, Tom's

I'm having a problem regarding my case's power and HDD LEDs. I recently did some cable management and some dusting off which went well until I arrived at my mobo's 2-pin connectors. I noticed that the connectors were missing pins so instead of having 10 pairs of 2-pin connectors, I only have 4 pairs that have complete pins, and the rest have one missing or are completely gone. The speaker, and the power and reset switches are all working by the way. I also noticed that my headers aren't snugly connected when I plug them in.

So what could be the issue here? Here's the pic for those pins:

Did I connect them in the correct manner and in the proper place?

Relevant system specs:

CM Storm Enforcer & Asus P8Z77-M Pro

No, you did not. Check the manual:
page 2-30
The HDD led goes where you've connected the power led.

My manual's buried somewhere in my room, so thanks, man. Though I've actually burnt every possible connection combination before stumbling on the right one. Haha
