How do you upload pictures from a camera using a cable to a laptop?

I'm not sure how much one camera varies to another for this, but with mine I just plug the cable into the camera and my laptop, then it gives me the option to upload all of the photos or just selected ones.

It should give you step-by-step instructions, so don't be afraid to plug it in and try. Then if you still aren't sure, just unplug the cable from the camera and the computer, and you won't have done any damage. But it really shouldn't give you any problems.
