Smile Lights Out

The lights in the downstairs bedroom and bathroom went out. The outlets are still working. I have checked the breaker box and turned off and on the breaker switches, but no change in the lights. Any ideas on what else to do?

You probally have a GFI outlet in the bathroom. Check it, it is most likely on the same circuit as the lights. The outlet should be square and have two buttons on it. One says "reset", push it in.

Thanks for the help. It turns out the problem was the GFI outlet. I was not aware that it controlled the lights as well as the outlets for the downstairs area.
