Is the ground side grounded?

Another possibility with your outlets is that the ground side of the outlet(s) may have come loose. That would explain why when you shut off the breaker, the rest of the outlets go out, but with the power turned on, it appears there is no power at the two outlets in question. If the ground side is not connected, the circuit is not completed even if the power is there. Check for voltage from the power terminal of the bad outlets to a known good ground.
Good luck
