After much Googling, searching on other forums and searcing here without any result, I'm gonna give asking here a go. Hopefully someone can help me.
At random Print Screen stops working.
If I want to make a print screen of my screen and I try to copy this into photoshop or paint, I just paste black image/background. If i try to use Alt + Print Screen, to make a print screen from a single window. My screen turns black and then back to normal, but there's no prints screen made.
If I try it with the Snipping Tool in Windows, I get the following message:
"the snipping tool is not working on your computer right now"
I found a few possible solutions on Google:
Running Outlook office diagnostic , but that did not work.
Restarting of some services, but that doesn't work either
Copy files from /Windows/System32 into a different folder, but that does not work or the solution is for 64bit version of Vista.
If print screen/the snipping tool doesn't work, there's no way I can get it to work again unless I reboot. Which is a solution, but also very irritating.
Does anyone have an idea of how to fix this?
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 with latest updates
UltraMon to share my screen for two screens
