    I was writing in a Word file, and was saving every few minutes. After one save, my computer crashed with a blue screen... the PAGE_NON_FAULT etc. error. After re-booting my word file was nothing but squares.

    Is there a way to recover my document? I have Word97.

    Thanks,
    Shelley

    Have you tried opening the document using Notepad? If none of Dreamboat's troubleshooting helps, you can post your document or PM me for my email address and I can try to see if it can be recovered/repaired with one of the utilities that I have.

    Okay, Anne... so the man ate my document. ;) I tried your link. I have Word97, sad but true, and it doesn't have the same features. I still tried some of the steps, just to see, but still get squares.

    Rollin...I will PM you and maybe you can recover it?

    Thanks to both of you!!
