    Press Print Screen.

    Go to Paint.

    Press CTRL+V to paste it.

    If it still doesn't work, try with a different keyboard. The button may be malfunctioning.

    It doesn't really print your screen. It copies your screens image to the system clipboard, and then you need to go paste it into something like Microsoft Word or even Paint in your accessories folder would work. Email me and I would be glad to give your more details and my phone number. :-)cutie
