Circuit Breaker woes

I turned off the electricity in a room from the circuit breaker so that I could install a dimmer switch... once I was done, only the light the dimmer switch controls would turn on... after turning the circuit back on, rather. All of the other outlets are not providing juice anymore... any thoughts as to what I stupidily did?

Thanks, DevilDodge

How were the wires in the box hooked up to the old switch, and how did you hook them up to the dimmer switch?

What wires are in this switch box? List ALL wires in the box.

Is this room a bathroom or basement. there could be a tripped GFCI somewhere. You didn't give very many details.
It could also be a wiring error.
