Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. You have an open neutral. Of is likely to be a bad connection on a device in the circuit. You'll find it either in the first dead outlet or the working outlet ahead of it. I suggest trying to wiggle those outlets with a plug while having a lamp plugged into one of the dead outlets. Most times contact will be made indicating where the problem is.
