Do you mean "Acer Chromebook"?

There might be something on this page to help you: http://www.fixya.com/tags/chromebook_wordbiz

Please note that "Help Me" is not recommended as a subject line because it doesn't indicate anything about the content of the post. A subject line that would tell more about the nature of the problem, such as "Problem with Wordbiz on Chromebook," would have been preferable. This page might help you get more out of Linux Questions in the future.

I have no personal experience with either Chromebook or Wordbiz, but the link I provided is about problems with Wordbiz on Chromebooks; did you take a look at it? I really can't help much beyond that.

I do know that making Scrabble-related stuff work with Linux and Linux variants can be difficult; Hasbro is very protective of its copyrights and patents.
