Just look around on your system. Play, so to speak. One way to start is just by figuring out how to change the desktop background. Find out what word proccesors your system may have. However, you've changed the topic a little bit so maybe this should be a new thread.

More detail. Do you mean you can not power it on? Is the battery functional? Did you plug it in? Do you get to the login screen and don't know what to do? Did you buy it new? Used? If you bought it new I would expect you got some documentation with it? Did you get an installation CD with the computer?
