We need waaaay more information than that.
What distro are you running?
Are you running a desktop environment?

How much do you know about linux? If I talk about GNOME or KDE, do you know what I'm talking about? have you ever used the command line?

jlinkels advice is the best, but if you have the Gnome desktop look at System Tools - System Monitor: that's a handy guide to what you've got and what it's currently doing.
