Print screen causes Windows 7 to freeze

This happen not long after on my PC after a fresh install of Win 7 , tried to use print screen but all of sudden windows froze and I have to restart each time. Are there any people out there got the same problem as me? I'm using the generic labtec ultra flat keyboard btw..

  1. Pls anybody got ideas how to tackle this?

    I forgot to mention; I reinstalled my graphics driver too (191.07 forceware), and switched to my Vista boot disk which print screen runs just fine..rule out that the keyboard is defective..but anyway I'm waiting for my sidewinder X6 keyboard to arrive in few days time -to see if it solves this freezing issue..

    or could it be that the keyboard is causing something for the OS to freeze??..
  2. Thank you, its the solution for the same problem but its only for Vista..I tried but was unable to.. Now I'm using another keyboard and its still here..Oh what a headache Win 7 lol..
  3. Since many issues from Vista carried over to Win 7, I was hoping this would be one of them. Oh well.

    I'll keep looking and see what I can find under Win 7.
  4. For now I'll refrain from using PRTSC , only using sniping tools..

    Actually I'd this problem for 2 days and now I solved it. I disabled "Debug" from System Configuration > BOOT Advance Options and it solved my print screen hang problem.
