Glad you got it fixed. It sounded like something screwed up in windows. lol j/k If you go into windows/system32, you can find the clpbrd file and drag it to your all programs menu. Then you can pull it up and see what the pasted data looks like when you need to.

i had this issue with somebody at work who also used dual screens, and resolved it by creating a new profile for the user. maybe this will bring your 2nd monitor back??

No need to create a new profile or anything. I was able to slove this problem by rebooting my pc but it is annoying and didn't work sometimes - I also have two monitors - One CRT and one LCD. If I moved the screen I am trying to capture to the CRT (monitor 1) it works fine. Windows has a problem trying to capture and paste data from monitor 2 that has the desktop extended to it. I am using Windows XP.

Hope this will helps.

I have this problem on my windows xp professional laptop connected to a single 24" LCD at 1920x1200. I am guessing its something do to more with the resolution than with dual monitors.

Anyone come up with a permanent fix for this?

I find that a restart solves this, it is as if the memory is full, or some sort of internal windows heap.

Another thing that sometimes works is to move one of the screens up or down, such as if your smaller monitors top lines up with the bigger monitors top, move it so they line up at the bottom instead, apply the change, then move it back after if you want, and then SOMETIMES it works again.

closing off programs etc rarely works, which leads me to believe it's maybe one of those internal windows heap sizes, which might also be fixed by the following:

Which also fixed some other strange problems for me, such as inability to remote desktop in to a comp with a large resolution screen or dual monitor, etc.

Hello,
I would suggest you to take out one monitor and work only with one monitor. Now check whether you can Prt Scr your image in the paint application. If this is happening then there was issue of second monitor. Many times this pasting of the images is not supported with the dual monitors. So you will have to work on single monitor. Once it is successful also try to the same with the another monitor. Hope that too will work.
