using openoffice writer in linux.
how to fix this?

Install OpenOffice on the windows machine :)

If you just need to display the document on windows (not edit it),
export a PDF from OpenOffice. I usually get very good results with
PDF export. Or try saving as XML or an older version of DOC.

Did you actually paste the images into the document or did you paste
LINKS to the images in the document? If it's links, the images won't
show up anywhere except on the same machine they're located on.
