Go to C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi\Help or to the folder where is installed you version and check if you have help files inside. Maybe when you have installed your Delphi you have unchek the help feature.

use regedit and look in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\x.0\Help.....the value must be the path where there's the help file (i.e.  C:\Program Files\Borland\DelphiX\Help - x means your Delphi version)
