Electrical Question

Hey everyone. Just got a quick question, hoping to resolve in one of my bedrooms.

The Bedroom light was turned on, The bedroom light went out. Most receptacles in the room went dead. No appliances plugged into them turn on. I changed one of the two light switches in the wall that turn the lights on, there is electricity going to both switches. We flipped all the circuit breakers and tested them all with a tester and they're all reading OK. What else could I check to resolve this problem

Loose wire at a receptacle due to using pushin connections. This may be on a still working receptacle on this circuit. Do not use the pushins, use the screws.
