Word 2010 comes with a list of default referencing styles. But on my computer the ribbon is blanked out. How do I fix this? alt text

Check the style directory located at

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\<office version>\Bibliography\Style

If the style directory is either empty or non-existent, you may have a borked installation. Reinstall Office
