It is supposed to darken the screen while snipping. The actual snip should work well. If not, check that you have latest video driver from http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx

Alternatively, you can use ctrl+print screen to capture. Then paste into your favorite app like Photoshop or MS Paint. In PS, after capture, hit file | new.

yeh drivers up to date, the screen dosent just darken it turns totaly black so you cant see the thing your trying to snipp, i used to use 3rd party in xp because you needed too, but i dont want to go 3rd party if the tool is already there to use.

Do you have the latest chipset and video card drivers installed? If not, that's your fix.
