If this is a fixed lens camera (you didn't give a model) I'd suggest strongly for you not to attempt to take it apart. Hopefully what you are experiencing is dirt on the outside of the lens. If so turn on the camera huff (breath) on the lens to create a slight amount of moisture and then use a lens cleaning tissue to gently clean the lens.
If as you say this dirt is on the inside then I would suggest getting it cleaned by a camera repair facility. Problem there is a lot of these point and shoot cameras cost more to clean and fix then it does to just go get another one.
Next thing if the inside is dirty they you must have a lot of lint in your pockets or you have been using this camera in a dusty environment. For carrying it would be best in an actual camera case rather then an open pocket and for dusty condition I've used shallow water camera bags and I've also used ZipLock bags while photographing a waterfall.

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it's something simple, a power-down reset may help. Turn the camera off, remove the battery, let the camera set for at least 30 minutes, then replace the battery and power up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

pull up the rewind knob to open the film door, using a soft brush clean the film chamber and takeup spool area don't touch the shutter. a q- tip for the finder. take off the lens and clean with soft tissue the front and back lens. unless the mirror is really dusty don't touch it. remove the battery and clean the contacts if needed. you can clean the camera body with a soft cloth.
If the specks are just on your viewfinder focussing screen, they won't be on your pics. If they're on both your pics and focussing screen, you need to find someone else to clean your camera. Cleaning either your CCD sensor or your screen yourself can leave scratches. Changing lenses often can suck dust into the inside if the body is dusty. Try another repair shop for thorough cleaning - it shouldn't cost more than $50.
