Laptop - Print Screen key stopped working

Ask a question


The print screen key on my laptop won't work! I have tried using CTRL, ALT and FN hotkeys but none of these seem to work.


  • If the PrintScreen key stopped working, here's are some alternatives:
  • Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On Screen keyboard > Prt Screen.
  • Click on Start > Accessories > Snipping tool.
