When I press "PrtScnSysRq" Print Screen, my PC freezes, HELP.

Hey guys,

Simply put, as the title states:

I press Print Screen and my system freezes.

I've had a look around the net, and apparently it is caused by another program using the same service, I need to isolate it and I cannot for the life of me find anything in the Event Viewer. I've tried disabling "Debug mode" in MSCONFIG as recommended, still have the same issue.

Anyone?

Sadly the easiest way would be process of elimination: Disable all your autorun programs in msconfig and then enable them one by one until print screen crashes your PC.

I ended up updating my BIOS and SSD firmware... solved the issue, but caused another. So I cleared the CMOS twice, reinstalled windows twice... and now everything is running great!
