I broke my apartment

I seem to have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit or invoked an ancient curse in my apartment. One of those things for sure. How can I get the power back on?

So my apartment has never had electricity problems before. Tonight it was really cold in my living room because my landlord recently shut off the heat for the season. I plugged in a little space heater and was watching TV when POP, the space heater and my television turned off. Now I can't get them to come back on! Help!
I opened the circuit box and none of the switches had flipped. I turned them all to the off position and then back on, hoping to reboot or something, but it didn't work. The rest of the lights in the livingroom and rest of apatment are fine. It's just the sockets along one side (that power my television and roku). I know not to plug the space heater back in. I just want my TV back!
Any suggestions? I would really, really like to avoid bothering my landlord. I know I can fix this by myself!
