Hello,
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.

Thank you, Runsidd 61

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.

Does your OS have snipping tool under accessories? I have Windows 7 and it works great for me. You can capture the entire screen or any portion thereof.

Hey. My laptop is Toshiba, too. Just click the PRTSCSYSSRQ button and then open Paint [etc.] and then paste it. Done.

I had the same problem with XP with a MS keyboard. I unlocked the "F Lock" function (top right of keyboard) and PrtScn works again.
