In the UK the fuse would be the first thing to check if there appeared to be no power getting to the ppliance. So, Patrick, when you say:

I believe the fuse was referring to the mains power panel. If the sockets good, then so is the fuse.
that is not quite correct, The wall socket may be fine but the fuse in the plug could be blown.
Don't know how the Australian or US systems works though. Be interested to hear!
In the USA a computers power cord is a three prong plug, 120 V + and - and the third is earth or ground. The main feed enters the home to a panel the has circuit breakers that are resettable, most wall outlets are controlled by a 120V 15amp breaker. There is no fuse in the cords. If you use a power/surge strip it may have a resettable fuse as part of the device. You can upgrade wall receptacle with a hospital grade receptacle that filters the power, is fused and build to a much higher standard that standard receptacles. I use the hospital grade receptacles for all my electronic devices.

If you have a large investment in your system I would recommend you buy a Power Conditioner. I use these on my stereo system and home entrainment system, computer has a APS so a conditioner is not really needed.
