Have you tried plugging the computer into another outlet? Did you reset the fuse in the power strip/breaker?

How were you connecting the hard drive to the other computer? USB? SATA? The data isn't lost, the worst possible case the PCB on the hard drive shorted out and it can get replaced to recover the data unless it is an SSD.

It sounds like the power supply is bad.

You didn't answer my question regarding the hard drive though.
