Copy them in the same directory.
If you are lucky (that is if your database was not working) you can directly restart the database.

What's in your alert.log file?
Copy and paste it.
Generally, copy and paste what you do and see, do not explain.
Use sqlplus.exe in cmd box, correctly set ORACLE_SID and PATH to contain %ORACLE_HOME%\BIN.

Michel
