What will happen to the hard drive in power failure?

Power failure as in whole house power failure? Or the computer's power supply failure?
Whole house failure, nothing, the computer will shut off and require rebooting, at which time you may receive a message the computer was not properly shut down, just continue as normal.
Computer power supply failure, same thing, nothing, except the computer will not reboot as the power supply has failed.

If you're willing to lose all of your data (files, bookmarks, etc.) then what you want to do is a "system restore" or "factory reset." That will reset the contents of your computer's hard drive back to the day you bought it. You will need to boot off of the recovery partition or the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer. Some computer come with one or the other. A call to tech support can talk you through it.

Format the hard drive and reinstall the OS. You will need the original Vista Disk or Vista Restore Disk you created after your bought the computer. Once you format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system it will be just as it was when you first turned it on. Know that you will loose everything on the computer when you format the hard drive. Back up what you do not want to loose.
