Download OCZ's utility for the SSD to see if it recognizes it.
Double check the the BIOS is still set the way you had it before outage.
But if SSD is NOT recognized in BIOS, I think you will find that it bought the farm, time to start thinking RMA.
You NEED an UPS, not one of thoes surge protectors.
Surge protector ONLY prevents HIGH level spikes from feeding into system - No protection for Low level spikes, and Does NOT allow an orderly shut down in the event of a power loss. And it does NOTHING for low Voltage.
NOTE - A power loss can kill a SSD (or a HDD), if in the middle of writing. With the Power loss, there is no controll and if the drive writes over the MBR, or another critical sector, may be hard to recover.
