  1. Look for a tripped GFCI. You may have several, and they are not necessarily in the basement. If you need help doing this, post back.
  2. Shut off every 15-amp and 20-amp breaker in your panel, then turn them back on. Do this even if the breaker doesn't look tripped.
  3. Buy an $8 outlet tester at your home center. Plug it into the dead receptacle and tell us what the lights say.
