Windows 7: Can't take screenshots...

01 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Can't take screenshots...

Hello everybody..

I have a bit of an annoying problem here and that is taking screenshots when playing a game.. When I press the print screen key and paste it at paint or a msn window it will show as a blank dark picture.. I find that quite bad to be honest and I just want to know if there's a solution to this problem.. Maybe something with the Aero Skin?

Thank you.
