    Hi Liz

    I'm afraid we are going to need a bit more information as there are a lot of different flavours of Linux. Don't worry though, we will help you to figure out which one you are running

    When you turn the laptop on does it go to a log in screen? If so does it say the distribution name?

    Do you know how to open a terminal?
