Lights work outlets don't

The other night we had too many things going on one circuit.

All the outlets died but the lights did not.

The breaker wasn't tripped.

The GFI won't reset.

I replaced the GFI but nothing changed.

Do I need to replace the other 3 outlets too?

Thank you... any help is much appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! Lights and receptacle circuits are usually separate. Sometimes breakers "look" as if they are not tripped. Turn the breaker completely off then back on. We can go further once you do that.

Try to go through these steps. I suspect a loose or failed connection from the high current draw.
