so far ive hooked up a 74HC595 + 330ohms for each the columns of LEDs , and 74HC595 + ULN2803A for the LED rows.

OMD No resistors! I'll burn in HELL!
is there anything wrong with my circuit?
... make sure that 2803 is the one that you put only one zero on at a time and put the data for that row on the top 595.
