Power Went Off to a Room

Electrical Question: I have an electrical problem where the power in a room went off.  I replaced the circuit breaker but the problem still exist.

Last night I was going to watch TV in the bedroom. When I turned on the remote for the TV the power in the room went off. I went to the basement to check the circuit breaker. When I went back upstairs the power still did not turn on. The breaker also was for the bathroom, and the lights going to the basement and the basement. I did go to the electrical store and bought a new breaker and replaced the old one but the problem still exist.
Do you have a solution?

This electrical question came from: Colleen, from Guilford, Connecticut.
