Question about Computers & Internet
Try unplugging the computer completely from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in, and see if it will power on.
If it doesn't it's most likely a blown power supply, when the breaker tripped, everything on the circuit basically fed back into everything plugged in. This is something most computer power supplies do NOT like.
The good news is, a power supply is generally pretty cheap, you can get new power supplies atarting around 20 bucks, although decent quality ones are closer to 50 bucks. Bad news is, there is about a 1 in 20 chance the power supply took other parts with it.
Once you do get it running, or get another computer, make sure to get a surge protector strip and plug everything connected to the computer into the surge protector. A 15 dollar surge protector can save you 150 dollars in parts and labor. (or more)

Testimonial: "thank you i'm going to try getting a new power supply and see if that works, i tried unplugging it and plugging it back up but nothing happened"
You may have burned a fuse .
try to look at the back of the fan unit , depending of the PC you could have a fuse externally accessible , otherwise you may have to open the box and look for the fuse in the power / fan box .
Make sure that your PC is unplugged prior to any touching inside .
you open the box at you own risk .
