How did you check the fuses? A visual check is not always accurate.

Did you check the main fuses? One of them could be out.

Loose leg possibly, or bad main fuse. How old is this place, and how old is the electrical system? If it is a fuse panel, not breaker, the other would be a blown fuse on the leg that is powering that half of the house. It would be the large block with the large fuses inside.

Lost leg as stated above! Check your main fuse and or consider upgrading your service at this point.
