Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
I don't think that the print screen key actually sends the current screen to the printer to print out. It used to do this way back when. What it does do though is capture the screen, which you can then paste into something like MS Paint or Photoshop or even MS Word. If you press just the "Print Screen" key on it's own, no function keys or shift or anything else, it will capture the entire screen. If you hold down the "Alt" key then press the "Print Screen" key, it will capture whatever window you have in focus at that point. So to capture just an error box message for example, you click in it with the mouse to make sure it's the active window (not grayed out title bar) then hold "Alt" press "Print Screen" then release the "Alt" key. You can then paste that into an image or word document by right clicking the mouse and selecting paste, or by holding down the "Ctrl" key and pressing V.
I hope this is what you were wanting to figure out when you were talking about the print screen key, and hopefully this will have helped you and cleared up a few things. :-)

Theres no function key lock, just the blue Fn button on the lower left corner of the keyboard.
If you cant get any of the function keys to work and the keyboard just thinks that you are pressing the standard button without pressing Fn, then this could be a fault with the contacts in the Fn key.

To help you troubleshoot your keyboard. I think you need to get a diagnostic utility running to be sure the key is faulty.
