Neither is absolutely necessary generally speaking. But that depends on what's necessary to you. I doubt you have need for a serial port, but if you did, you would know. "USB 2.0 module" is too vague for me to comment, but I assume it's something you can connect/disconnect at will, perhaps an additional bracket with USB ports you can hook up to a connector on your motherboard, in which case it isn't needed, but it is nice to have.

Ensure your motherboard is reading your hard drives as SATA and not as something else. I had difficulties with my mobo at first from that.

There is a second power connection (usually 8 pins) that is only for the CPU, in addition to the larger 24 pin motherboard power connection. Make sure you have them both connected.

OK, so you have the SATA power cable connected to the hard drive. Your picture shows the SATA data connector. Your motherboard should have come with some of those.

Still though, you said your computer is not turning on at all, so it's highly unlikely that the lack of a SATA cable between your motherboard and your hard drive is a problem. Computers don't need hard drives to power on.
