This needs investigation. If the working sockets are on the same final circuit as the sockets that do not work then you almost certainly have a loose connection at a socket or junction box. This is the type of fault that can lead to cable overheating so it requires urgent investigation.

Its possible that a wire has come adrift within your installation or consumer unit and would advise you to have it checked by an electrician.
I am more than willing to take a quick look at it for a small charge.
