Diy Headlights!!!!

I just bought a new set of DEPO headlights with Halos and an HID system. well i cant seem to get my high beams to work but my lows and my halos and my corners all work like normal. anyone ever experienced this problem? and if so how did you fix it? ( yes i do have them plugged in correctly or so i think )
