When you see your boss, ask him if he has another computer for you while this one is being repaired.
And also ask him a new keyboard, so you can type more than only CAPITALS. He doens't want his letters written in CAPITALS, does he?

Ask him for a new keyboard first.

Then consider that there are more Word processors today that can edit and create .DOC files than I can possibly list.

Even Google Docs can do in a pinch and no CD required.

BE MORE CREATIVE.
