Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

My Compaq keyboard won't display ''print screen'' when I press that key (prt scr). Everything else works fine on the keyboard. I purchased the computer/keyboard about 7 years ago. Thanks very much for any help anyone can offer.

The print screen button doesn't usually do/display anything other then pasting the image on the screen to the clipboard. go into another application like word or paint and select ctrl+v to paste (or right click then select paste) If you hold Ctrl then press print screen, it will only copy the open window.
