I take it you are pressing the 'print screen' button to capture the whole screen or 'alt+print screen' to capture the active window. If you are the screenshots are copied to the clipboard for pasting into another apllication. Try to open up say MS Word and go to 'edit' then 'paste'.

Are you trying to print them out or save them? If so go into your chosen software (let's say MS WORD)and RIGHT (not left) click anywhere on the opened blank document, a popup box will give you the option to paste, click on this and hopefully this will trandfer your screen shot into the document.

after hitting "Print Screen / SysRq", goto "start, programs, accessories, PAINT" and select new, paste, where you should get a prompt that the image is large in clipboard, just select Yes and your image should be there ready for the "crop" tool..!
