I'm using a Dell Inspiron n5010 laptop with Windows 7 64.

The PrntScr key won't capturing anything to clipboard.

I don't want to use OSK (on-screen keyboard), or snipping tool or external keyboard, though PrntScr works with OSK.

PrntScr is the only key not working.. But no problem with entire keyboard hardware.

Does anyone know how to simulate the same print screen operation with other keyboard keys? Or any utility available in any websites?

  • Are the hotkey drivers installed? – user201262 May 29 '14 at 15:03

  • No idea but it's worth a try. You get them from the manufacturer's website. – user201262 May 29 '14 at 15:12

If your laptop is still under warranty contact Dell support. They will replace your keyboard for free.
