Windows Media Player: Screen Capture (black screen)?

Q: Windows Media Player: Screen Capture (black screen)?

Watching a video in Windows Media Player...I wanted to get a screen of a part of the video. So I press PrintScreen...and travel over the MSPaint. Hit paste..and lo and behold...the screen is there...except the video is still playing! LOL

I tried to pause the video..then save. But when I reopen, where the video should be it is black. Is there a way to make screen grabs of videos in WMP? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Windows Media Player: Screen Capture (black screen)?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows Media Player: Screen Capture (black screen)?

I think this question has been kicked around before, I just don't remember what the answer was or how to query the search base here for it.

I'm going to move this to the All other Software forum, since it is really a Windows Media Player, not an XP question; I will edit the topic also.

Perhaps one of the denizens there will recall this one.

Here's one I remember: try IrfanView, it worked when I tested it.

Hi.. I think this is got to do with my AMD graphic card: when attempting to use the built in camera of my HP laptop windows 8, a black screen comes up and the same goes for video files in windows media player.  The problem is fixed when I manually reinstall the graphic card from the HP Recovery Manager, but when the computer is restarted the same black screen problem shows up again.
So far I have to manually reinstall AMD every time I restart, and was hoping someone can help me correct this problem so I don't have to manually do it every day.
Any help please?

Hi, I can watch videos in media players half of the time without crashing. It happens on several players, including VLC, Divx, Windows Media, WM Classic. What happens is I can watch the video (sometimes all the way through) but it randomly Garbles all of my graphics, including the mouse pointer, then 5-10 seconds later the screen goes completely black and I am forced to reboot.

I have an 8800GTS 512, Windows Vista Home premium service pack 1. I have tried 3-4 x64 nvidia drivers and this problems occurs in all cases. I can watch youtube videos forever and no crashes, same with games including TF2 and WoW.

Any help is appreciated, I've googled for a solution for hours, and most related to mine are from early 2007.

I've used Screen Hunter 5 (Free version) successfully for months. After a recent XP update or Adobe update the screen capture function has become unusable. All that I get is a black square in place of where the image was. I've relaoded the Screen Hunter program and tried other screen capture programs, all with the same result. Any way to solve this?

Hi All,

I'm trying to convert my old VHS tapes to my PC (Windows XP) through my Dazzle capture card. I've connected the composite leads (yellow, red and white) to my Dazzle (which is plugged into the USB connection on the front of my PC) and have connected the other end of the composite leads (yellow, red and white) to the front of the VCR (the VCR does not have a USB connection).

When I try to capture the footage through Movie Maker I'm not getting any preview image - black screen with no sound.

I have also tried connecting the composite lead to a SCART converter (switched to OUTPUT) and plugged this into the SCART connection in the back of the PC but I get the same results - black screen with no sound.

Any of you guys have any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

A:VHS capture through Dazzle - black screen no sound

Hi All,

I've managed to get video to appear now. I've connected the composite leads to a SCART converter with a INPUT/OUTPUT switch - switching to OUTPUT resolves the video problem.

The only problem I have now is that I don't get any sound. Through MovieMaker it asks for a Audio Device and a Audio Input Source. I have tested combinations of both my internal soundcard and the Dazzle as the Audio Device but without any luck.

Any ideas anyone?

A:Black screen in Windows Media Center

Hi Alex,
I just thought I would share a little bit of information with you about your issue. I have basically the same computer that you do but mine is an HP. I found a resolution that worked for me after spending hours researching blogs, tech supports, microsoft website and all but I resolved it on my own. This may or may not work for you but you can try it. I went into my screen resolution settings and max out my resolution and made sure that my refresh rate was set at 60Hz. It totally worked for me, and I understand why because I do some gaming on my laptop and remember changing this a while back so maybe it will help. Let me know. Good Luck!

I found a solution for the black screen in Windows media center. I'm using Windows 8.1. I had turned on the hibernation option in the power options. I think my computer went into hibernation during the recording of a TV program.

I turned off the hibernation option and my screen is back. I think that is all that was wrong. Very simple. Hope it works for you.

How on earth do I do this!?

I've got a number of .avi files on my PC and I want to screen capture a couple of shots from them and save them as .jpg, .bmp etc.
The logical way would be to Full Screen the video, pause it and 'Print Screen' which works to an extent but then causes all sorts of problem with the frame once its still, almost like the .avi is on a separate layer to everything else.. I've also tried SnagIt which even identified the .avi as a snagable area, but when I pasted the image in 'Paint' it was simply black...
Any help on this matter would be much appreciated... thanks

I recently reformatted my os because of a virus. Now DVD's won't fill up the screen when I go into the full screen mode. There is a bar at the top and bottom of the screen. It also does it when streaming video from the internet in full screen mode.

A:Windows media player 11 not full screen

Go to Start/run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, all devices with a yellow mark need to have drivers installed. If your Display adapter has a yellow mark, then go to your computer manufactures Support/Download Drivers site type in your make and model # and download the drivers you need. Then try either increasing or decreasing the Resolution to see if that helps.
If that fails, try VLC player.

Can anyone explain to me why it is that some of my DVD's when played on WMP [or Real Player etc] have a stepped edge at the bottom and top of the picture window?

The lack of a smooth edged outline around the sreen is really irritating and I'm wondering if there's anything I can do about it. It happens no matter what the screen size. Full screen is affected as well. But not on all DVD's.

Not sure why or when this started, but when I open WMP v11, it 'opens' on the far right-hand side of my screen. I cannot grab it and drag it over, but I can right-click on the edge of it and get the menu. I've tried minimizing, restoring, tileing, cascading from the task bar with no help. I've tried changing the resolution of the screen to see if it would pop in better. No luck. I tried rolling it back with no luck as well. Any thoughts?

Relevancy 81.7%

I have a dual operating system and run both Win98SE and W2K on separate partitions.

I do quite a bit of video "work" and use Windows Media Player 7 as my video file player.

I've noticed in Win98 that the viewing area is significantly larger than in W2K when videos are played. And I can adjust the viewing size in Win98 by dragging the player window diagonally down and to the right to increase the video size, but in W2K it is only about 1/4 the size of the player window....and increasing the player size does not increase the video size.

I can make it fill the whole screen, but the resolution is bad then and I don't want that.

Does anybody know what I can do to increase it's very small size?

Has anybody else noticed that with Windows Media Player in W2K?

Hi there and welcome to Eight Forums!

The sollution to your problem is very easy. Click and hold the upper blue bar and drag the entire window a little bit down and to the left. Now you can hover over the rightabove corner of the screen. There will appear an arrow in a 45degree angle. Click and hold an drag to the lower left to change the size of the window to whatever size you want it to be.

Now close Media Player and restart it. You will see that it's the same, smaller, size that is was when closing.

Good luck with it!

Suddenly my Windows Media Player (version 10) won't go entirely to full screen. When I use either the oblique arrow or the dropdown window to expand the screen to full screen, it enlarges, but the top and bottom frames/bars don't recede as they used to do. Is there a fix for this? Has anyone else experienced this? I tried moving the cursor to various spots of the screen, to no avail, and I have searched Google for an answer. But so far nothing.

I am hoping someone might have a fix for this. I have other media viewers, so it isn't a critical issue, but I'd like to have my WMP in correct operating condition.

Is it a big deal to reinstall Windows Media Player. If I were to do this, should I uninstall the player before reinstalling?

i've searched for two nights on this one. no luck, so decided to come here:

Sony Vaio VGN laptop w/DVD RW
100g hd 1.5 ram 1.8 processor Sony DVD burner

after replacing a crashed hard drive and with XP Home reinstalled, DVD playback only encompasses a small, upper left-hand portion of Windows Media Player screen.

and there's no audio.

cd data plays full screen with audio. video files play full screen with audio.

the local computer store was able to retrieve most or all of my data, and replaced the hard drive. could it be there's a codec issue? or wrong driver installed? i don't have any installation or restore disks.
any ideas?

thanks, d

What version of Media Player are you using? Sounds like an Mpeg2 codec issue to me.

It's so weird. I can do absolutely everything else on my computer but when I open Windows Media Player to listen to some music the pointer on the screen starts vibrating. Now i'm no techy, by far. I thought it might be my mouse so I wen't and bought a new one. A wireless one this time instead of having to worry about that stupid cord. But as soon as the player opens, the pointer on the screen starts jumping up and down. I don't even have to be playing music yet for that to happen. And it doens't matter if I play music or not. The eniter time the player is open, the stupid thing vibrates. Even if i minimize it and jump on the internet. Anyone know what's going on? And try to dumb down your responses because as I said, i'm no techy.

A:Every time I open my Windows Media Player my pointer on my screen messes up

Could be several things causing that. Easiest to try is; Open Media player, click on 'help' in the bar at the top, in the drop down box, choose 'check for updates'.
See if that cures it.
If not, try, Start, All programs, Windows updates. If no improvement, it could be that you have one or more 'codecs' missing from your system, ( should have been covered by the 'updates' point I mentioned above ), but you can install a very comprehensive codec pack, that I have used before with good results.
Copy and paste this link into a new tab in your web browser; (or just double-click on it)

Note that you can uninstall this afterwards if you don't think it helped.

Hope one of these works for your jittery cursor !!

Hi, recently when I opened an .avi file with windows media player classic it automatically went full screen and there were no controls (seek bar, play, pause etc) available. The hotkeys did not work either. For instance the space bar usually acts as a play/pause button but now it doesnt do anything. THe only possible way to stop the movie from playing once it is in full screen is either by Alt+F4 or by starting the task manager. I have tried it with otherr files (.mkv) and it still does the same thing

I don't really now how to fix it (I have tried rebooting my PC several times!! ) so please tell me if you know!

Dear Tech Support Guys I have recently been experiencing problems with Windows Media Player and Quicktime playing streaming videos and occasionally videos that I have on hard-drive Codec Green Screen: and Quicktime Media Nightmare - Windows My Player in which a green screen takes over the visuals leaving only audio Also computer judders to a halt if I leave the green screen running Green Screen: My Codec Nightmare - Windows Media Player and Quicktime I read an internet discussion dating here which recommended uninstalling all codecs and replacing them with ffdshow a sort Green Screen: My Codec Nightmare - Windows Media Player and Quicktime of all-in-one codec I could not find any codecs I felt safe about removing and so just installed ffdshow I looked for codecs on my computer Green Screen: My Codec Nightmare - Windows Media Player and Quicktime via device manager and found the following ivx D DivX Codec ffdshow Video Codec iccvid dll Indeo video ir dll ir ax iyuv dll msh drv msh drv msrle dll msvidc dll msyuv dll tsbyuv dll I am not sure if the above rings any alarm bells but if there are some codecs that definately shouldn t be there i e might be causing clashes please tell me On another note I found that ffdshow also allowed for vorbis and flac the former which I could only play using winAMP and the latter which I could not play at all on the computer Therefore I ticked the boxes in ffdshows options on the installation hoping that they would play in WMP They still will not work with WMP I m wondering whether ffdshow codec has actually done anything at all I don t really understand what is meant to happen when you install a codec like this or any codec for that matter Should a codec automatically allow the format in question to open on any media player once installed or is it more complicated than that I hope you will be able to help me around the green screen problem and could hopefully clarify why I still cannot play flac and ogg in Windows Media Player Many thanks Edo nbsp

Try to disable automatic restarts. Then when the problems occurs it will list a blue error with technical information. Record the specific error and details and post back.

1.Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2.Click the Advanced tab.

3.Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4.Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK

5.Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Also you could try to uninstall WMP and then reinstall it.

I have been having this problem since a week or so. Broni has helped me in malware forum to rule out malware as responsible. My machine is clean and I was refered here for further help.

Here is my problem:

At boot-time, I see windows XP load screen with the progress bar, the progress bar advances to the end and then, the screen turns pitch black and all is see is an arrow cursor I can move around. I thought until yesterday that this was a permanent freeze-up, but if I wait, say, 6 minutes, the black screen disappears and windows then starts normally.

Last week, problem was intermittent, it now happens all the time.

Windows boot-up was fine before.

Please help me.

A:Windows load screen at boot, looong black screen, then normal startup

I had this tons of times with my old XP PC. It is normal if you have a lot of files on the HDD and you have little RAM. How much RAM do you have? What is the capacity of the HDD? And do you have the Windows XP disc? Would you be willing to upgrade the RAM and/or the OS if we must resort to that? Or would you rather just buy a new PC?

I am encountering an issue of when the Dell optiplex 755 boots up, it boots through the Windows XP logo just fine, once it tries to transition between the logo and loading the system up, it just shows a black screen and nothing else happens. I tried using a bootable Windows XP flash drive to repair the system files and it loads the Windows XP setup ok but when it runs through all of the commands on the bottom of the screen and the last one says "Starting Windows" , it takes me to a blue screen (screenshot below). I have HIRENS and have done a lot of the chkdsk commands to fix the files and everything comes back ok. I tried to clone the hard drive with the same exact hard drive and still the same issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi NickyJane,

We'll start with ComboFix. If it doesn't take care of the remaining issues, AVG may have caused more problems than if it had left it alone.

Download ComboFix from here

* IMPORTANT- Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop


Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications as they will interfere with our tools and the removal. If you are unsure how to do this, please refer to our sticky topic How to disable your security applications


Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

NOTE: If you encounter a message "illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion" and no programs will run - please just reboot and that will resolve that error.

I will return this evening - we'll continue then.

A:Windows Vista black screen, no bootup logon screen

It may be that someone didn't turn off the PC rather that it experienced a damaging event and shut down.Suggest you check the RAM - remove and reseat and try rebooting. If not successful your mother board may be damaged - nasty thought.There is also this site which may be relevant. you can get your PC going suggest you check Event Viewer. Then restore files from the recycle bin and then use SHIFT/DELETE to get rid of them, delete a small file and see if emptying the recycle bin works OKPaul

Good Morning,

For the past several months I have been having problems with my HP desktop computer. When my system reboots I sometimes get a black screen with nothing on it or it gets stuck on the windows logo or I get a blue screen with a bunch of writing.

The blue screen tends to happen with the computer goes into hibernation. So I changed my settings to that it doesn't happen but I would like to fix that so that I can give my computer a rest during the time that I'm not using it.

I have checked for malware, viruses you name it... nothing.

ps I had wonderful support several years ago regarding my laptop.. thank you once again :)

A:Black screen, Blue Screen & Stuck on Windows logo

Hello Britt,


I would like to fix that so that I can give my computer a rest during the time that I'm not using it.

The best way to do this is to simply turn it off; it will also save on the electricty bills too.
When I am not using my machine, I turn it off, because here in South Australia we have the second highest electricity charges in the world.


I get a blue screen with a bunch of writing.

Can you tell us what the blue screen says; usually this is due to a recent hardware or software change; however, in your instance it might be the Hibernation feature that is malfunctioning.
Post back with the information about the blue screen, please.

Kind Regards,

I am not sure what's wrong, but I have uninstall nvidia drivers that gave me problems ie. 257.21, 196.21....etc. I am currently using 195.62. I am certain that it was a VGA driver problem, because it never happened again, till I decided to remove windows internet explorer and it did the black screen thing again. It restarts and instead of showing windows splash screen it shows a black screen. When I am at the black screen I can't do anything, I will have manually restart and when it boots up the second time it will load windows. It's ____ me off. I hope someone can help me here, and I appreciate it. Atm I am gonna reinstall IE 8 and let's hope for the best.

PS. I just bought this new HDD WDVELOCIRAPTOR 300GB. So it's brand new. Don't know what's going on.

Hmmm! Been having the same problem myself with 7 ultimate 64 bit. It only happens on a "restart". Cold boot works OK.
I just hit my reset button, get message to do startup repair or start windows normally.
Select the "normal" and all seems to work OK???????

Hey all,
I am having problems with the screen freeing when running multiple windows (Chrome, office etc etc). When I try to swap between windows, I get a freeze and I am unable to do anything.
The cursor can be seen moving around the screen but has no effect in any area. The Windows Key doesn't ppear, nor can I tab into another programme.
If I try and start task manager to see which program is causing this, it will not appear over the frozen image.
Is there a way of telling from an event log what program is failing?

A:BSOD (black screen and windows startup screen freeze

Ok 116 error is caused by your Graphics card.
First thing to do is update your drivers from the NVIDIA website.

If BSODs continue Try HDD tests,
download gpu-z to check if your card is getting too hot, also is there lots of dust in the card?

Do you overclock your video card?

Computer was purchased new about 18 months ago. Computer had gotten slow and caught a worm a month back, so I decided to wipe and do a clean install. Reinstalled WIndows XP, and the chip set drivers, and the monitor drivers and went to MS and got service pack 3 and allowed windows auto updates to update.

But then media player will not play DVDs now, Sound comes through but just a blank screen. Installed PowerDVD 6 and it had the same issue. Downloaded microsofts codec checker which said there were no issues.

Don't know enough about media players to know where to go next.

Searched through microsoft FAQs to no avail. Went to search here but the search page only renders an error 505.

Dear all,

don't know if this is the right forum but...

When playing MOV files from my Kodak digital camera, the screen on my desktop media player (Quicktime, Real player or kodak software) the audio is ok but the screen often goes green as seen in this pic.
I can't remember when this started happening, maybe a month or two. More recently, trying to play such a file will cause a crash and on rebooting the message 'the PC has recovered from a serious error'. I know it is a problem with the desktop cos the files play fine on my laptop. It seems to be a problem with MOV cos Real Player will play AVI files ok. I have the latest versions of both Quicktime and Real Player. My video card is NVidia GeForce FX5700 LE.

Is there any way to diagnose this problem?

Thank you

I have been doing much searching to reslove the issue but no luck. My system is Windows Xp Pro. I had recently installed VMware player 3.1 and after finishing the installation it had prompted me to restart and when I did the computer went through the boot sequence normally but after the windows logo disappeared I was just left with a black screen. I have tried safe mode with the same results. I have tried to run a repair from the Windows CD and it will not load. The only way I can get a prompt is booting to Windows system recovery option.
I am left at the C:\windows prompt and a short list of commands available. I was wondering if there is a way to use system restore without booting windows? Any other possible solutions are welcome as I am stuck. Also any other info that I can provide please let me know.

I usually like to leave my computer on overnight. So I go offline, disable my wireless, and put on a video playlist in full screen to help me sleep. Anyway, today I woke up and saw the Windows Media Player no longer full screen, and the wireless switch was actually turned on.

I have a computer running Windows 7. Last night the computer was running fine. This morning when I turn it on, i get a black screen. To fix the problem I conducted a system restore. After it finished restoring, the computer restarts and everything worked fine. To make sure if everything was in working order, I restart it again. After the "Starting Windows" screens comes up, I get the Blue Screen of Death. I can't even read what the error says because the computer just restarts itself. I did not connect anything new to the computer. I performed a hardware diagnostics to see if it was a hardware failure but no error was found. I can't even get into safe mode. The SFC.exe will be my next step.

Hi was wondering if others experience this. Trying to figure out the cause and if there is a fix.

When I turn on or restart my computer after the teal windows logo with the spinning wheel the screen will flash off quickly then come back on black and then 10 seconds later show the lock screen.

It's kind of annoying to have this delay happening and wondering if it's normal or something that can be fixed.

A:Black Screen after teal windows before lock screen


That sounds normal to me. The only variation might be "how long" you pause on the black screen (while your boot is being processed). Now, for some, that black screen might flash for only a few seconds but for others, it could last quite some time. My advice is to do nothing and live with it.

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. Everytime or almost everytime I click on an app or go to the desktop and try to get on IE 10 (desktop version), my screen flashes and goes black for a few seconds then returns me to the screen with the space needle, then I click on it and it signs me back in. When I try to use Google Chrome, the websites freeze up on me. I don't want to have to reinstall/reformat as I paid $40 for this for one, and secondly, I don't want to have to repurchase Office 2010 as my licenses ran out. Please help. I ran every update that comes up and restart, but this doesn't change this issue. I'm hoping there will be a patch or service pack or some update that will fix this. Any ideas why it does this and any way to fix it without reformatting?

I had the same problem at first. Then one day the listing of all my apps disappeared. I did a refresh and lost a lot of programs but the files were still there. Then I noticed that the problem with the apps had fixed itself and they worked. My feeling is that the initial install wasn't complete and the refresh completed the install. Recently, after loading my Epson printer's CD, the apps once again disappeared. Had to do a system restore. Now I am having trouble with my screen just being black and not coming on at all...even after a reboot. Win8 has a lot of problems.

Hello. Recently had a virus and have been going through the steps here on bleeping computer to help get rid of it. The last thing I was told to do was run the farbar scan tool and to copy and paste a code and hit fix. Upon doing so the computer prompted for a restart. It now won't get to the log in screen. I've tried booting in safe mode and I've also tried last known working configuration as suggested and nothing has worked unfortunately. I was told to come here. Hopefully something can be done. Thanks a ton.

Tap F8 at boot and select Repair Computer from the Advanced Boot Options. Do a System Restore to a date just before the problem. 
You cannot do the above and if you have another Windows 7 computer create a System Repair Disk. Boot and try a System Restore to a date just before the problem.

A:[SOLVED] Black screen after Windows loading screen

Use an XP Installation Disk to run chkdsk, and hope your problem is HD errors.

If Safe Mode, Last known good configuration and System Restore are all not working, the only thing left is a Repair Installation.

Do you have a XP Installation disk ?

I am posting on behalf of my friend because he cannot get on but he has a cracked versions of ms office 07 and his dad accidently installed the office genuine advantage and Office SP1 and now this has happened. We have tried booting in safe mode, booting off the windows vista disk and restoring the bios back to system defaults but neither of these have worked. He has Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 and his computer is an ACER Aspire.

I will be updating him with any information posted.

All help is highly appreciated.

Looks like WGA got another one.
I think a format is in order.

As a side note dont put the cracked software back on.

I would think that your first priority, assuming that your data is safe, is to obtain a means of reinstalling/repairing XP. I mean, that would be my first priority if I intended to run a system with XP on it and I did not believe that the system would run perfectly until I decided to retire/sell/junk it.

So my first suggestion would have Dell and inquire about recovery/restore CDs for your system.

As for your apparent option of taking it to a shop...that won't resolve the fact that you have no install disks of any type.

I've not ever seen an XP sticker that doesn't indicate which flavor of the O/S is installed.
