Maybe you should consider therapy.

I don't think it's possible to take fullscreen screenshots with the *Print Screen* button on the keyboard if I remember correctly (unless you already tried it before and it worked). From my experience, I always thought it wasn't possible unless you're using a third party software (FRAPS for example). It's a different story when playing games in *Window Mode* though.

I have never been able to take screenshots of my games in full-screen mode. No, never. I think it's just the way it is. But then I've never asked how to get a screenshot of my games either. But I imagine that there's special third-party software for it.

Happens to me sometimes, 99% of the time it works in most games but sometimes I will get a random black image. There is one game it happens 100% in though, BF BC2. :l

Why don't you just use xfire or something for taking screens? unless you tried already..

I haven't tried, im just frustrated this isn't working anymore as i've done it so much in the past. The only things i have changed were drivers.

Oh. So then go back to the driver that you were using when you were able to do it.

Don't most games nowadays have their own key for a screenshot? For the ones that don't have a key specifically for taking a screenshot, Fraps or Precision works for me.

Can I join you? I only wanna bite people's faces though.

I had this problem for a while, one minute I was screenying people calling me a hacker and crying when I pwned them in BF2142, then it just kept showing as a black screen. Was gonna start using my FRAPs or XFire screenying thing (at least it saves it for you), but it sorted somehow 0_o

Never found out how...
