What operating system and version are you running?

In addition what happens when you try to paste it in a photo-editing program, such as Microsoft Paint?

(After pressing the 'PrintScn' button, of course).

Does your laptop have a 'FN' key? If so, try holding that key while pressing 'PrintScreen' and see if it works.

Did it used to work before? I suspect that it might be a hardware issue, so ya that would be a good idea to have someone take a look at it.

If you'd like, there are many screencapturing software that you could use temporary until you get it fixed, if necessary Happy
