The electrical loads in a house are divided. Each 'breaker' or 'fuse' controls the maximum current flow to only certain loads. If there is a 'sub panel', it may control a combination of other loads. If you are losing only some loads, a subpanel or breaker has tripped, and not the main breaker. Or you could have a neutral loose at the neutral bar (white wire) check with a screw driver for tightness, or a loose wire at some junction box. Neve stick a screwdriver, or any other object, into a circuit box until you have insured that the power is off!
