Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You connect the leads to R & W. Most common colors are red and white. White to W and Red (or the other color) to R. If that's what you did I need the brand and model of your thermostat.

it's actually White and Blue, I thought I had done that hookup but the Model No. is Honeywell TH4110D1007

If you have the leads connected to R & W and your furnace or boiler won't respond then you probably have a problem unrelated to the thermostat.

Well I rehooked up the old Mercury Thermostat and the Furnace started working again normally, which is good as it is snowing today, I know I could have picked better weather to do this project.

If you didn't change any of the installer set up functions (default setting will work) and you connected to R & W it should work. You can try switching the colors since color coding isn't always followed.
