(The exception would be when you are backfeeding a breaker)

Power Out in ONLY One Room...but breaker not tripped


So went and played 'Sparky the amateur electrician' and didn't find anything backstabbed or out of the ordinary. Unfortunate as I'm not sure where else to look.

Any thoughts? Otherwise I think I'll need to call a proper electrician to come and look at this

Is it possible that the wire into the Breaker Box came loose?

I'm thinking that I remove the breaker cover and look for any dangling wires or anything that is loosely attached.

Thoughts?

Possible, but unlikely.
I don't think you are ready to be poking around inside a breaker box. Hire an electrician to trouble shoot your problem.
He may pull the panel cover.
If not, you can ask him to. But be prepared to pay him for the education.
