Are you using IIS or Apache?

If IIS, you need to grant write permissions to the IUSR account (as that is the account which IIS will use to access the folder).

Not sure for vista but should be similar to XP you can do this:

Go to the folder in Windows Explorer
Right click on the folder go to Properties
Go to Security
Select the IIS user (if not in list have to "Add" them)
Then give them the permissions you want them to have (read/write).

In Apache on Windows, so long as the folder is within your web root folder, the default is that it is writable by PHP.

Then there is an error.  Try adding the attached code to the start of the PHP page.  It should force PHP to display any errors.
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 1); 
error_reporting(E_ALL);
?>

But you are just getting a blank page?  Should there be any output from your page (i.e. text)?  A blank page more often than not implies a syntax error in the code.  It may be worth posting the code here so that it can be double-checked.

this is the html code

<html>
<body>
  <form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="filephp.php" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="20000" />
    Choose a file to upload: <input name="ufile" type="file" />
    <input type="submit" value="Upload" />
  </form>
</body>
</html>


and this is the php code that when i click sumbet it goes to here
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
error_reporting(E_ALL);
?>



<?php





$ufile=$_FILES['ufile'];
$name=$ufile['name'];
$type = strrchr("$name",".");
$type = substr($type, 1);


$tmplocation=$ufile['tmp_name'];
$size=$ufile['size']/1000;
$error=$ufile['error'];

if ($name=="")
echo "You need to choose a photo to upload";
else
{
echo $type;
if(($type!="jpg") && ($type!="jpeg") && ($type!="gif")&&($type!="bmp")&&($type!="png"))
{
echo "You can only upload a photo";
}
else
{
if($size>3)
echo 'the max size of the file is 3mb';
else
{

$newname = 'upload/'.$name;

   move_uploaded_file($_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'], $newname);
   





}}}

The PHP had lots of errors in it.  Also, it helps to read it if you indent structures (such as if structures).

Attached is the code without syntax errors.  See if you get better results with it.
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
error_reporting(E_ALL);
$ufile=$_FILES['ufile'];
$name=$ufile['name'];
$type = substr(strrchr($name,"."), 1);
 
$tmplocation=$ufile['tmp_name'];
$size=$ufile['size']/1024;
$error=$ufile['error'];
 
if ($name=="") {
	echo "You need to choose a photo to upload"; }
else {
	echo $type;
	if(($type!="jpg") && ($type!="jpeg") && ($type!="gif")&&($type!="bmp")&&($type!="png")) {
		echo "You can only upload a photo";}
	else {
		if($size>3) {
			echo 'the max size of the file is 3mb'; }
		else {
			$newname = 'upload/'.$name;
			move_uploaded_file($_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'], $newname);
		}
	}
}

Oh, apart from the fact I missed out the closing ?>.  Added in this code.
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
error_reporting(E_ALL);
$ufile=$_FILES['ufile'];
$name=$ufile['name'];
$type = substr(strrchr($name,"."), 1);
 
$tmplocation=$ufile['tmp_name'];
$size=$ufile['size']/1024;
$error=$ufile['error'];
 
if ($name=="") {
	echo "You need to choose a photo to upload"; }
else {
	echo $type;
	if(($type!="jpg") && ($type!="jpeg") && ($type!="gif")&&($type!="bmp")&&($type!="png")) {
		echo "You can only upload a photo";}
	else {
		if($size>3) {
			echo 'the max size of the file is 3mb'; }
		else {
			$newname = 'upload/'.$name;
			move_uploaded_file($_FILES['ufile']['tmp_name'], $newname);
		}
	}
}
?>
