I am trying to open a .docx file. OpenOffice asks me about ASCII and the file opens, filled with symbols. How to open this file normally?

Update: I have tried to open the file in Wordpad but it also shows random symbols there.
I have redownloaded it from the server.
I have tried to manually change the file extension.
I have tried opening the file on a different computer.

Any other options?
