Yes, your current thermostat is compatible with the Nest 3rd Gen Learning Thmerostat.

 

Give this wiring a try.

 

Orange - RC to Rc (jumper to RH not needed)

Green - G to G

Blue - Y to Y1

White - W to W1

 

You might have some problems with the cable that was used. The terminals on the base don't always grab the thin wires from a data cable.

how can i tell you which gen of the learning thermostat that i have?

 

also i seen your replys on here to many others. I greatly appreciate you being the one to comment back and let alone give me a wire configuration to try. Thank you so much.

 

im going to try this first thing in the morning
