According to the Oxford Learners Dictionary , it should be He instructed me in the use of this computer.
The sentence sounds a bit weird to me, so I hope a native speaker will be able to help.

On. Agree with jfaraujo though - it is a bit of an awkward sentence! He showed me how this computer works/He showed me how to use this computer.
