I have to install Word on my computer.I have the CD.

I have an old computer - like 5 years old. It became really, really STUFFED at some point - I don't know how it happened, but it did. I don't even remember - I had not used it very much. I had to take it to a computer expert and he had to delete everything. One of the things he deleted was Word.
I have the "fake Word" that was free, but I also purchased a real Word CD. I need the real Word on my computer for my new account.
Now I find that my CD-ROM drive is one of the dead soldiers. So I bought an external drive. Tried to install Word. It says Word is copyrighted.
My task today is to go to Best Buy and get a new internal CD-ROM and install it. I think I can do this, but my question is: Do I really need it? Or can I use the external LiteOn DVD/CD player? I think it is a rewriter.
I have known some of you for a long time. Those people will know that my brain is set in concrete. I have to have specific instructions or I can't do it. Can anybody help me?

Where did you buy your copy of "real Word"?
It's possible you got rooked with a pirated CD..

Big problem with giving my computer back to the shop when I really need to work on it, and I actually thought I was capable of installing this program.
Thank you for your reply.

I'm sure you are capable of installing the program, but first you need a valid copy of it. (And remember that if the deal appears to be too good to be true, it probably is.)
