Electrical Circuit in Bedroom Not Working?

I lost power in my master bedroom only. I do run a window AC unit in my bedroom which is now plugged in with a drop cord to another outlet. The GFCI breaker was not tripped, but resetting it did nothing. I put a brand new breaker in and that didn't work. Could it be the outlet causing this were I ran the AC unit? Or is there anything else it could be?

This is a difficult problem to troubleshoot. Having replaced the breaker, the attention needs to go to where the air conditioner was plugged in.

Power to receptacles is typically daisy-chained from one to the next. The air conditioner is a major cord and plug power user. The first receptacle box in the daisy-chain would see the most electrical load. Have a qualified electrician remove the receptacle where the ac was plugged in and visually inspect it and the wires for heat damage ( a loose connection will generate heat, especially under high load). He/She can then meter to see if power is getting to that receptacle and then meter the receptacle to see if it is any good.

I would suggest doing this sooner rather than later. I do not like drop cords, especially ones loaded with something like an air conditioner.
