This can be caused by several different things but the issue is with the main power.
The most common cause of this type of power problem is a failing main circuit breaker. When a main circuit breaker fails it will not allow all of the power to flow through it and into the panel, which supplies all of the other circuit breakers with electricity. In most cases, half of the breaker will stop working leaving you with only half of your power. When this happens a main circuit breaker replacement will be necessary to correct your power outage and fully restore your electricity.
Other causes can include:

All of my power is out, here is what you can do:
A power surge or spike is a sudden and sharp increase in electrical current or voltage. The difference between a surge and a spike is that a power surge, by definition, last for 3 nanoseconds (billionths of a second) or longer while a spike lasts for 2 nanoseconds or less. Both are capable of doing significant damage to your wiring and circuit breakers along with computers, appliances, electronic devices and LED lighting inside of your home or office.
Power surges can be caused by a variety of different things. The most familiar cause is a lightning strike but it is also the least common cause of surges. More common are the types of surges that are caused by the switching on and off of high consumption electrical appliances like air conditioning units and refrigerators. These types of appliances pull huge amounts of electricity when they first switch on. This switching on and off can create somewhat unnoticed, yet very damaging power issues because they continually disrupt the steady flow of electricity through the electrical wiring system.
While these types of internal surges can be severe enough to damage the electronics in your home or office; they do not have the single event destructive capabilities that cause electrical circuit problems like lightning strikes can. On the other hand, these types of internal surges are frequent and regular, slowing doing gradual damage to electronics and shortening their life expectancy.
