If you try to reset the breaker and it snaps back off there is a problem with the circuit or an appliance plugged into the circuit.
If the breaker is on and no current at the outlets you need to test the breaker. This can be dangerous.
You need to remove the cover plate from the panel and expose the wires to the breakers. It is best to have someone with experience help you. You will need a meter or a "Wiggly" tester.
