Try to look into the Normal.dot template or replace it from other working system.

The normal template (Notmal.dotx or Normal.dotm) is found at the 'User templates' location:-

Word Options>Advanced>File Locations...

Open it, add a field (e.g.) Date, and use the Alt+F9 toggle until the Date is displayed. Delete the field and save the template.
