Try adding this to your ./application/config/mimes.php

PHP Code:
'doc'    => array('application/msword''application/vnd.ms-office''application/octet-stream'),
'docx'    => array('application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document''application/zip''application/msword''application/x-zip''application/octet-stream'), 

Just add this to the end of them both.

PHP Code:
'application/octet-stream'

Did you check your error log file, it may put the error reason in there.

Some browsers see the mime types different then they are.

Have you set the allowed file type in the configuration ?

Have a look there Upload Preferences
