Language can be set in several places - default for all documents, default for document, and also for paragraph. This only causes problems if you have more than one possible module (I have en-gb and ru in addition to en-us).

But if a spellcheck has completed with nothing happening then no language module has been chosen. Type F7 and there is a box at the top which says which language has been selected. If there is nothing there, then suggestion below will work.

I have installed Libreoffice 3.3.1 on Windows 7, and I still have a
problem which
was there with OpenOffice:

1. Spellchecking usually does nothing. It says 'spellcheck complete'
     but it hasn't actually checked anything.
2. On a few documents, it works OK i.e. it is to do with a document
setting, but I
     can't spot any difference between the option settings in the documents.
spellcheck for which language? If you want to have anything other than en-US, you'll have to install the 
appropriate languagepack and helpfile in addition to the software package. Once you've installed all those 
packages, start LibO and go to "Tools>  Options>  Language" there you can set the UI language as 
well as the default language used in your documents. Check that everything is set to your preferred language.

I think this helps.
