115v problem

My gf overloaded the living room outlet with a space heater and micro at the same time, now none of the living room and bedroom outlets are dead. The only ones working are the gfci in the bath room and the 3 in the kitchen. Nows where it gets weird to me, all of the breakers have 115v on the black wire end however no power is getting to the outlets in the L.R and B.R, if I shut all the breaker off the bathroom and kitchen outlets stay on even after the breaker is off? Any ideas on how to get the outlets working again? I took them all out and none have any voltage but all look fine inside.
Thanks for any help.

Somebody's done something to the wiring. Each GFCI should be fed by a circuit breaker. It does the leakage sensing, and when it trips, that GFCI, and each of it's downstream, or slave, outlets (usually 4 of them) get shut off also. Begin by replacing the tripped GFCI. It may have fried internally by the overload. It is not designed to be overload protection, but leakage protection. The circuit breaker feeding it should trip in an overload. However, If any of your GFCIs are "alive" with all circuit breakers off, then something is very wrong. The GFCIs would have to be wired "hot" to the input, without the benefit of a circuit breaker on the input side. If that's true, it's time to call a pro.
