click here possibly.

Also check that the language isn't set to noproofing.

Probably not the answer but have you checked the language your new machine is using. In MS Word Tools/Language you can set default language.

I had this once!

Double click in that status bar at the bottom where it describes what language you're checking and then make sure that there is NOT a tick in the do not check spelling as you type box.

I once misread that and wondered why spelling errors were not picked up.

I think someone put a bit of reverse logic in there!
