No Power to Sockets

We have a room that has some dead sockets. The light switch and two of the sockets work and I did not find any loose backstabbed wires in any one. Where should I look next? Should I replace the working sockets and light switch?

Are these light sockets? Have you turned the breaker all the way off then on again? Are there any lights or receptacles on the breaker that do work? Is this a bathroom or kitchen?

Yep, flip the circuit breaker off and then on first. If that doesn't restore power, check all of the receptacles on the circuit, there's likely something wrong with the last live one or the first dead one on the run.
