I'll assume for the time being you are referring to the game 'Counter Strike'.

The snipping tool is unusable (to an extent) while playing the game, its usually only good for getting small pictures or images of certain areas on the screen.

As to the main problem, I am not sure what would cause the black screen, aside from perhaps try updating your graphic card drivers?

Same happens for me - using FRAPS to capture screenshots works fine.

Yes, I'm referring to Counter Strike. And graphic cards drivers are already updated.

Same exact problem happens to me with EVERY game.

After crawling around the net for a bit, everyone just gives the same answer to anyone who asks about it:

"Must be the game you're playing"

It's annoying to have to use another program just to "print screen"

Just press F5, the screenshot will be automatically saved in a folder labeled "Screenshots" under the CStrike folder.
