Do you have a backup? With a power/system failure like that, it's likely the file is corrupted.

Not really. Once the file is damaged, you've lost some of the data. It's possible that you may be able to get at the composite data with another PSD reader, but if Photoshop can't open it, it's likely no other app would be able to open it.
