Electrical Outlet and Hall Light Not Working?

I have one outlet in a room that is not working. My daughter used a blow dryer and it stopped working. Also now the light in the hall is out. I checked GFCIs and none were tripped, but I reset them anyways. I checked the electrical box and none of the breakers were tripped, but I know sometimes it can just look that way so I turned the one for her room and bathroom off and then back on. I did the same with the breaker marked for GFCI outlets. Everything else upstairs works, just not the one outlet and the light. Any ideas?

The blow dryer might have shorted out that circuit. Unless you are comfortable with electricity, you should call a qualified electrician.

Same exact problem here too. Our bathroom plug stopped working after I plugged in the blow-dryer. Lights still work but outlet had zero voltage (used a tester). It's an older house, older wiring. My husband was not comfortable replacing as he wasn't sure which circuit breaker that plug was on so we called a qualified electrician. 20 mins and $200 later, he replaced the housing unit and the outlet. Works like a charm. Electricians make slot of money and for good reason. Working with electricity as a noob sucks and
