Thread: taking screenies????

    Default taking screenies????

    is there a way of taking a screen shot of whats on your monitor when it's locked up or frozen? every now and then my video card locks up and leaves speckled colours on the monitor so I have to reboot! I'd like to get a screenie of it!

    ummmmmmmmm guessing that lock up leads to reboot ergo info loss on reboot so guess not, digi cam ???? seems lame but all I can think of.

    EDIT: Try the 76.41 drivers for your card

    Camera. ANZAC_ELITE had the gist above... you can't get a screenshot when the system has to reboot as this data is saved to either RAM or the swap so will be purged when the system restarts.
