My print screen button on my toshiba does not work! I have tried using ctrl, alt and FN but none of these seem to work. the button says 'prtsc' and then undearneath it says 'sysrq'. I have tried pressing the print screen button, then going into paint/word and clicking paste, but none of these work!

Please help, I'm desperate!

I am unaware of the resolution, but as an interin measure, you can try the following:
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On Screen keyboard > Prt Screen.

I have been searching for a solution all afternoon. I am using Vista.

You are the only person that provided a workable solution.
Thank you,

Found something else that works.

press the FN key and the Prnt Screen keys at the same time.
The FN key is found beside the windows-logo key ( usually bottom left hand corner).

Alos, try the Snipping Tool. To find this, type Snipping Tool in the search bar. It walks you through the process.
