    After using the print screen key open MS pain and click on "Edit" to drop down a selection menu. If there is something in the clip board the selection "past" will be available ( not grayed out). Just select past and your image will appear.

    There should be something like this for Photoshop I would think..
    Works the same for PSP 7..........

    dont suspose either of you tried the xp repair option to try and remap the key ? or possibly install a new language file to the keyboard to see if that makes it work again ?

    I use a utility called "Print Key 2000". It's free from one of the PC magazines and a google search will find it. Works perfect!
