I) print screen is option that will your current computer screen(in whatever position), when u press print screen an image of screen or current is copied in to your clipboard(cut, copy ,paste) now you have to paste  or copy it in some docu( it is like copying an image......), so now try to open an microsoft applications such as word, powerpint and paste the image in that by pressing ctrl+v or right lick and paste it... youwill an image of you screen.......

and you have to do this which made to think its not working 

ii) coming to the volume button:

    sometimes youhave to load software or keyboard drivers that come with the keyboard, try this if not there must be mechnichal failure...

Thanking you

If you have Word 2007 on your computer, the insert key is controlled in Word. While in Word, left click on the big circle but at the top far left of the menu (next to "home"). A menu box will open. At the bottom of the box is "Word Options", click on that button. In the far left column you will see "Advance", click on that and to the right will be a selection menu. Check the boxes "Use the insert key" and "Use overtype mode". This should work.
