I am running a Linux distro called wattOS R3 and i wanted to take a screen shot of the hard-drive. So i rebooted the computer with a live gparted cd and when the GUI appeared i pressed 'Print Scr' on the keyboard and i then exited and rebooted the computer to boot from the hard drive once again but couldn't find any trace of a screen shot? Could someone help me out here please.

The GParted live CD does not have any mechanism for saving screenshots. You can install Gparted as a program from your package manager in wattOS, then run it and then take a screenshot.

wattOS is ubuntu-based, is it not? Look in the "Graphics" section wherever applications are and see if there is not a program for taking screenshots. If not, I suggest going to command line in terminal and performing this
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install shutter
Shutter should then appear in the Graphics or Other portion of your app menu. Use it to take screenshots!

Best wishes & hope this is not too late to save you some frustration if first reply was not what you wanted!
