Try unplugging your keyboard, restarting your computer and then plugging the keyboard back in. If there is no change, try updating the keyboard driver by going to "Start" and searching for "Device Manager". Find your keyboard on the list of devices under the "Keyboards" section. Right click on it and click "Properties" then "Driver" and then "Update Driver"
To do a "Print Screen, hold down the Shift Key and Hit PritScrn. Open Paint or some other graphics program and paste the image. This will paste the print screen to the graphics program and you can then edit, print or manage the print screen any way you desire. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
I don't think that this keyboard has that key built in.
Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.
You could also use the on screen keyboard.
Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:
- Click "Start" button
- Click on "RUN"
- Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)
The keyboard comes on
You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:
- Right click on the desktop
- Click the new shortcut button
- Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.
Some keyboards have a feature called "Number Lock" It is mostly found on laptops. But turn it off to regain your default keyboard. On most keyboards it is located near the screen shot, print screen buttons. Push your shift key and the NumLk/ScrnLk button, and your keyboard should return to default.
If the print screen button doesn't work, try to use Alt + Print Screen. If that doesn't work either, then try to re-install the software that came with your keyboard (if there is).
However, for most multi-media keyboards and mice, the CD that comes with them usually made to program the special buttons only. But I'm not sure in your case. There could be an option for you to re-program the buttons on your end, including the Print Screen button.
But if there's no way to re-program it and the Alt + Print Screen didn't help, then you may want to send the keyboard to the reseller or manufacturer for repair. It's a hardware defect.
Yes, there is a button, up by the function buttons, that says "print screen". I've tried pressing just that button; pressing that button and the alt button together; and pressing the "Mode F" button and the print screen button together, but nothing seems to work
I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and it has a "F lock" key. This key has to be set on "Off" to let it know that I want to use the Print Screen function versus the Insert function on the same key. May be your keyboard is the same way.
