Php installation not working

After I downloaded the wordpress zip and unzipped it and opened the readme and clicked the link to install php this came up. I am not a programmer so none of this makes any sense to me. Please let me know if anybody has any ideas.

Error: PHP is not running

WordPress
Error: PHP is not running

WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off.
