|You can try 7Zip and see if you can get at least your data.|
This may work with ZIP, but I use 7Zip and I know it works.
If you do not have 7Zip then look here: http://www.7-zip.org/
The .docx file is actually a archive file type, so you need to "open the archive" with 7Zip or ZIP
Once you have the .docx file open, there should be several internal files,
the one your interested in is the file called "WordDocument"
Extract this file, and then use JEdit or Notepad to open the file.
There will be a bunch of garbage data but, all your typed data should be there.
See if that works for you.
