1. See if you can reboot the PC in 'safe mode" if not
2. then you will have to format the hard drive and reload the Windows operating system.
The PBR you refer to is the MBR (MASTER BOOT RECORD).
the hard drive has gotten a power spike from the restored power and wipe the boot record from it.

If the monitor gets no signal it will show orange. or ,It's hibernating or sleeping. Shut down computer, reboot, open Control Panel, Power settings, change to High Performance, change Hibernate to never or disable, change sleep to never or disable. Shut down the computer and monitor when not in use. It will last longer and reset the computer every day when turned on.

Power light blinking


if the power just shuts off for no reason when booted up,it may be the power source is on the way out ,it will work for a while, but keeps crashing, thats the first thing to replace
also make sure you hear the fans working
if it overheats it has a safty shutoff ,
you can also use a house fan, aimed inside the computer while open, to rule out power source

Dont worry just boot your computer using Bootable disk or windows installation disk, enter into Recovery console by pressing"R"
type the Administrator password if any or simply press "Enter".
At the command prompt type-"fixboot"
once done restart your computer normally.
