You have what sounds like a 2.3Lite Plus. Your first mistake is that you bought a Plus. All I have ever heard about them online is how they screw up and dont work. But, here goes nothing. I would recommend that you fill the LPC holes on the motherboard with solder in order to get a better connection, I have heard that this helps. Also, make sure everything is lined up perfectly. Yes you need the second board with red wire hooked up, the newer chips now require it. This is a ground and also pulls power from the USB. You hook the bigger board into the USB controller port that should be coming from the front. The smaller one that a screw goes through is the ground. Make sure this is hooked up nice and good, many problems have occurred with it, I have never had a problem, but you never know. I have heard that if you put an unmelted ring of solder between the ground and the motherboard it helps. Good Luck, and read tutorials.
