Answer: Hi Doyle,I'm sorry to say this to you but you should call an electrician. You have tested all the thing that a home owner can be expected to check. You might want to double check to see if any GFCI outlets tripped. You could turn every circuit breaker off wait 5 minutes then turn them back on and repeat. II think you may have sent a power surge through your system turning on the power strip. You could of had a week connection that went bad.
