electrical trouble-shooting?

Recently, i lost all my electrical power in both bathrooms upstairs in my house. My house was built in 1986 and the circuit breaker panel is not marked too well! I can't seem to find which breaker controls both bathrooms, however, none seemed to be tripped on the "off" position. I am looking to trouble-shoot the situation before I call in a professional (if necessary). Any thoughts?

A definite possiblity is a "Tripped" GFI receptacle, therefore the 1st.-step is to check ALL GFI receptacles, including exterior receptacles, for a "Tripped" mode.

Good Luck!!!!!

Given the year that your house was built, Im guessing its a tripped gfi in the garage.
