Prt scrn button does not work on Gateway KB-0532 keyboard

I have a neat quad core Gateway, had it for a few months, had a Dell before. Print screen does not work. Won't copy to Word, into e-mail, into Excel, Notepad, Paint, NOTHING. I am not computer illiterate, use this function every day at work with no issues (Dell). Anyone got any ideas? I have used in combo with Shift, Alt, and Ctrl to no avail. I'm desperate as there is no other way that I know of to copy file listings and such.

It doesn't work on my laptop. It works if you hold down the FN key whilst pressing the prt scrn button, if you cannot find the FN key, on my laptop it is next to the CTRL button on the bottom left. Hope I've solved your problem!

I have a new Dell Latitude E6400. Print Scrn button does not work for me, either. Worked on my previous Dell laptop; works fine on my Dell desktop.

Occasionally a glitch will occur where a certain symbol will keep repeating itself as if I'm holding the key down. Such as \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\. I


Nope, the KB isn't completely clean - you have a key that is staying stuck down - (usually some dirt in it. Work out which keys - showly working through each of them - then pop the top off that key, and clean under it. Or get a Replacement KB.

I have a gateway keyboard KB-0532 it will not work can i download new drivers for it


You could try to find "new" drivers for download, but you are NOT likely to find any, *AND* any new drivers are NOT likely to solve your problem.

Try your keyboard in a different computer. If it still fails to work, it's necessary to replace the keyboard. If it works, try connecting that other keyboard to your computer.]
If that "other" keyboard works fine in the "other" computer, but does NOT work in your computer, then your keyboard is NOT the cause of the problem; instead, your computer has some other problem.

The print screen button doesn't to it on it's own. You press it when what you want is on the screen, then open a photo program and paste the 'captured' image in. hold ctrl tap the v key, then let go of both keys.
it should then show you your screenshot. you can then save it or print it

Partial keyboard doesn't work.


Try blowing on it with canned air or a hair dryer. Other than that keyboards are cheap and easy to replace. Good luck!
