Strokers lost power.

My Hayes Stroker Trails just lost power. Both brakes, on the same day. The rear one will barely lock, and the front one is a little worse than the rear. The levers still feel the same. Is it just pad contamination? I tried cleaning the pads and rotors with nail polish remover (what my local bike shop recommended) but it didn't make a difference? What could be the problem?

Could be contamination, or it could be overheating from dragging the brakes too much on longer descents. In either case though, what Bicyclist said should fix it.
