Whoa. Take a deep breath. Does Word open up? Can you start a new doc, save, restart word, then open it up again? Can you see your files in a file browser? Is your computer plugged in??

Need more detailed info on exactly what is happening.  Is it just one file or all files? 

When I see the message “The document name or path is not valid” that more than likely means that the doc or docx file has been moved or the file name changed.  Did you change any file names, did you move the file(s) to another location? 

As stated we need more detailed info and if possible any steps you took when this happened.  Did you try anything to resolve the issue before posting here?  Do you have the Office 2007 install disk or install msi/exe?  if so, did you try to do a fix errors or reinstall Office?

Did you download and install anything prior to this happening?  Did this happen after any MS updates?  Did you plug in a USB drive that had been used on another pc?  etc. etc. etc.
