And you have shut off the breaker and turned it back on?
Looked for a GFI that's tripped?
There also going to need to know have you been doing any new wiring?
Adding a ceiling fan, changing a light fixture?

Well, let's start with some questions.

1. How do you know which breaker provides poser to the switches?
2. Is this situation something that has always been so or has something happened or changed?
3. Are there other outlets or lights that are powered from the breaker that you have identified? If so, do they function properly?
