These are instructions I have copied from here ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/240204) that tell how to set a portion of text as "Do Not Check Spelling Or Grammar". I think they can also be used to find and un-check that box:

   1. Select the text or paragraph you do not want Word to check.
   2. On the Tools menu, point to Language and then click Set Language.
   3. In the Language dialog box, click to select the Do not check spelling or grammar check box and then click OK.

If that doesn't work, you could try spell checking in another program, like Google Documents or Open Office, then copy and pasting the changes into Word.

If your entire document should be using a specific language, select everything (Ctrl-A), then use Review | Language, Set Proofing Language to specify the language to use.

This is a common problem for content being merged in from another source, where the "no proofing" language attribute had been set for the source material.
