Electrical Outlets don't work

I've got a brand new house and electrical outlets that were working at one time now don't work. I've reset circuit breakers and don't know what to do next. Can anyone help?

It's likely these are associated to a GFCI outlet that may have tripped. These are easily identified by two little buttons located in the center of the outlet itself one is labeled Test and the other Reset. If the one marked Reset is standing proud push it to activate.

Thanks Canuk - I tried 4 times before this and nothing happened. This time it worked like a charm.
