Hp Dv6-2154ca. Print Screen key is not working

 

My print screen key is NOT working at all. I need to use it for an urgent assignment, so if someone can help me out, it would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

MrFraudi,

 

Are you using the Function key (Fn) when you press the print screen key?  Need to know just in case.

No, i'm not, and even my fn key is not working. Like when i want to use symbols on the numbers in the keyboard like @ and stuff, my fn key doesn't work, and i think that is why my print screen doesn't work either.

To use print screen properly, you must press the function key and the print screen key at the same time.  Then, just to verify, open Paint by clicking Start>All Programs>Accessories>Paint.  Then try pasting into Paint by pressing the CTRL key and the letter V at the same time.

MrFraudi,

 

What are you trying to do in Explorer or Chrome? Are you trying to take a screen shot of the browser/web page?  Or are you using the function key for a different task?

ya that works in explorer and chrome but not in word, even other stuff like !, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ), _ works with shift in word, but none of the other symbols like μ  and other symbols that need the fn key, and i have to go look for the symbols on the internet and then copy paste them even though i can use them if my fn key works.
