Hi there and welcome
What exactly happens when you try to access your iPad? What stops it from working?
Can you please hold the home and power buttons on the iPAd for about 10 seconds until you see the apple logo then release.
Let the iPad restart and tell me please if you still have the issue.
What you need to do on the computer Margaret is download and install iTunes from here
