Display Error in 3.0.1 - HEEEEELLLLLLLLLPPPPPPP!

A frequent problem I have had with 3.0.1 is a formatting error when re-opening 
a file.

It will complain that the line length is too long, and display a small 
fraction of each cell.  After some initial panic and cursing, I realised that 
the information still apparently exists in the file, but that mathematica is 
unable to show it, in spite of the fact that it displayed perfectly normally  
when last saved.

Those files affected are more "word processing" documents than active 
documents, and have involved working at 125 to 150% magnification and 
formatting equations large enough to be easily seen, with alt-3 alt-4 etc.
Can anyone tell me how to fix the file so that Mma can display the contents?

I will be eternally grateful to whoever can help me!  :-)

I am running Mma 3.0.1 for Windows on a pentium 60 Mhz system with diamond 
stealth graphics 2200 accelerator card.
