Open the bookmarks backup file in Notepad.

Your old bookmarks, hopefully,
are listed there. In Chrome, 

go to Settings > Advanced sync settings

(under the Sign in section) and
change the sync settings so
that Bookmarks aren't synced,
if they currently are set to sync. ... 

Then rename the "Bookmarks.bak" file to "Bookmarks"
