cannot set temp path to work in

Hi, i was trying to reinstall w7 to factory condition on my ASUS laptop when  'ERROR: cannot set temp path to work in' appeared on the screen. I was using the recovery cd that was provided. The second time i tried, it only says error after loading doing the same thing like previous. 

 I was planning on reformatting the c-drive and then recovering the files since my entire hard disk has been inaccessible including safe mode.

please help. I need my files from the c-drive urgently.

I would suggest you to contact your computer manufacturer for recovery disk.
