    I press print screen and when I try to paste it into a program, it doesn't work. Can't figure out why.

    Windows XP SP2
    Dual monitors

    It just stopped working one day. I'll try to think back to what I installed recently meanwhile...

    I just looked up all of the programs that are running right now according to task manager and I doubt any of them are responsible.

    Well, it's Print-Screening, but won't paste.

    Wait, this is weird. I opened MSPaint to see the error it was giving me, realized I had text on my clipboard, hit Print Screen and it worked! Print-Screened some other things, kept working!

    However, as soon as I close Paint, it stops working! :nuts:

    And now even with MSPaint open, it's not working! :rolleyes:

    The error Paint is giving me is:

    "Error getting the Clipboard Data!" -> OK

    "There is not enough memory or resources to complete operation.
    Close some programs, and then try again." -> OK

    WTF, I have a gig of RAM and it's not all being used. :nuts:

    Perhaps the file where the clipboard contents is corrupted...

    Just rebooted and it's been working find so far. I've rebooted before and it's stopped working, so I'd imagine it's just a matter of time until it stops working again.
