    If this is a personal Oracle installed on a PC, there will be a "Start Database" option on your start menu.

    In any case, you can connect in SQL*PLUS as SYSDBA and start the database.

    USER: sys as sysdba
    PWD: change_on_install


    once connected:

    startup


    This is a very simple explanation for what can be a complex process. I'm assuming this is a test or learning database that will not be depended upon by anyone other than you . . .
