Hi:

 

Do you have a Print Screen key?  Probably abbreviated. Prnt Scrn

 

You may have to use the Fn+the print screen key if it is combined with another item on the same key.

I have the same laptop, and I tried pressing both the fn and prt sc keys, and just pressing the prt sc key, but nothing happens?

Once you have hit FN and prt sc at the same time. The you must open your paint program (in accessories in your programs) and then hit clrl and the letter V to past it into that program is how I do it. Once in there I edit and then copy and paste into my word doc.

Hey, 

 

 

                 I have the same Laptop but I tried pressing FN + prtsc then opening the paint program and pressing ctrl + v and it still didnt work for me.

What may be the problem?

Hello soccer12369.  I understand you're trying to get a screen capture of your desktop.

So, neither Print Scrn by itself or FN+Print Scrn work?  

You could also try using the Snipping Tool.  To access this tool you click the Start button and go to All Programs.  Then you go to the "Accessories" section and it will be located here.

Let me know if this helps!
