Hi coronado70, try to power drain the pc.

Turn off the pc, unplug all cables from the PC. If this is a laptop, remove the battery. If this is a desktop, proceed to this next step:

push and hold the power button for 5 seconds.

Then plug back all the cables to the pc (including battery if it is laptop)

turn on pc, then try to press the prtsc by pressing FN.

hope this helps.....

How do I screenshot with my netbook device?

Assuming the netbook keyboards are similar, there should be a key labelled PrtSc near the upper right corner of the keyboard (see attached pics). Pressing the shift key and this one will save the screen image to the clipboard. Open a photo editor or document editor capable of displaying images (e.g. MS Word, OpenOffice Writer) and paste (Ctrl-V). If the PrtSc on the key is printed in blue, press the Fn key (located near the lower left on the keyboard) rather than the shift key.

Why doesn't my print screen button work?


The PrtSc (Print Screen) key when pressed will seem to do nothing but it does when you hit the key it puts a copy of your current screen to the clipboard.

To prove this do as below

1 press the Prtsc button on your desktop
2 Load paint and choose new
3 go to the paste option or press CTRL+V and you should get a copy of your desktop in paint.

How do I use the prtsc button on toshiba ? It has END/prtsc. THANKS

If the 2 words written on the key are different colour then you might have to press the Fn key + End/prtsc for one of the options. If they are both the same colour then the Shift key + End/prtsc.

The Fn key has the same colour letters as the key which is pressed with it to perform a particular function.

My computer laptop model is Toshiba satellite P750. The FN key doesn't work. Nothing happen when i touch it.

The "Fn" key is a function key, it works with the top row of F1 to F12 keys.

row "F" keys,

I'v provided a link for you to go to for the full list of "F" functions and what they
do for you as well as how to operate them on your Toshiba Laptop.

Mry print screen button has END on top and PRTSC on the bottom. When I try to print screen a page, it moves to the bottom of the page i'm assuming its doing the END task on the button. However, I need to...

I had the same problem today but after many tries I figured it out. Press the FN key (next to the left control) and the End button.

Long story short:
FN+END=Print Screen

I can't make a print screen on my pavilion dv4

Usually on laptops, you need to press a secondary key at the ame time.
Do you have a 'Fn' (Function) button?
If so, press Fn+PrtSc at the ame time.

Cannot save Window screen image with Alt-PrtScr

if there is an 'fn' key on your keyboard then your combo would be
fn+prtsc+alt - to capture top windows and fn+prtsc to capture entire screen
If however your prt sc key is combined with another key and written on top then you need to use
shift+prt sc + alt to capture top windows and shift+prtsc to capture entire screen
