i had a home inspection and there where 4 outlets that had the no ground light partially lit. i have looked at all the "bad" uoptlets and can not find a problem . the groung appears to be in tact and is connected to the green screew . i have replaced all the outlets and switches with thje new modern square style in the last month to improve the appearance for a house sale .

Check all the outlets. The wiring problem is probably in the outlet just upstream from the outlets testing for no ground. Did you use grounding pigtails when you rewired?
