The docx file type is a newer version of the Microsoft Office word doc type.

It sounds like the first computer has an old Microsoft Office or no office at all, and the second computer has a recent version of Microsoft Office.

If I am correct about the first computer you can install Open Office to get support for reading and creating docx and other office file formats.
