Your posts are jumbled to where they're nearly incomprehensible so most will just move on.

I thing you're trying to say the power went out, but did the battery run down too. Normally a laptop will go into sleep or hibernate before just cutting out after power loss and/or when battery runs down.

Either way, I'd try all of the repair options - skipping the disinfection since that's not at issue here - in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.
