Try pressing print screen, then open up paint and press CTRL+V to paste the screen shot into paint.

Hmmm, although it doesn't fix your problem, the screen capture in Photoscape is pretty awesome. It's a free photo editing programming that works pretty well.

Press ctrl + print scrn, then open word, wordpad, or paint, and press shift + insert.

I think the combination of "FN + Print Screen" works for most laptops with Windows system. But if this way does not take effect, you may try the Snipping tool which can be accessed from "Start" - "Accessories" - "Snipping". It comes with every Windows system and provides quick workaround for making screenshots. This solution does not rely on any third-party program, but the only drawback seems to be that it lacks of editing options for polishing your image. You may try a free online screenshot tool to overcome this issue.
