Hi,
it would be good if you give some more informations about whtat distribution you use and be more specific about the hardware.
The kernel version you have is a bit old and probably there are some updates waiting for you to install but you will have your machine working in short time.

That is a kernel version .

There is probably a name advertised when you switch the computer on. It might be something like Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, SuSe or Mandriva. I'm sure you'll Dad will be able to tell you
