Default MS Word 2003 file corupted after an unexpected shut down

Hello!
I have an annoying problem. The power broke down while I was editing a Word file. At the restart I noticed that the file was corrupted. I recovered two versions of the same document, one with signs something like this:

Q ? ? bjbjqPqP ?? 4? ?:? ?:? QS? YY? YY? YY? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? F? F? F? F? R? ? ?? j? j? j? j? j? j? j? j? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? $ ?? h? y? B? ? ? ? j? j? j? j? j? ? ? ? j? j? ? ? j? j? j? j? ? j? ? j? ? j?

and another with blank spaces, that I suspect to be signs. Also, the file was converted to .doc from after it was initially .rtf . Does anybody know any quick solution to recover my text?

Thanks

Are you sure that you are looking in the correct location? A crash
wouldn't change the file type. After you have find the *.rtf file, see
if you can open it with Open and Repair.
