first off sry if this has been asked before i searched and didnt find anything.
With that said installed my 6800gt the other day and with the drivers it came with (61.72B i belive), it wouldnt exit out of opengl games (ie: DoD, Doom 3) but it would out of BIA (assuming BIA is a directx game) i tried newer drivers when windows would restart after installing them all my icons and images in windows would be all messed up with lines and such, so i went back to some older drivers that seem to work (66.81). and these work i can go into and out of games fine except for that i cant take screenshots in any of my games (including BIA).

example: http://home.comcast.net/~HYBPS/SS.jpg

wondering if this is a software or harware problem.

Comp Specs:
Asrock p4v88 mobo
P4 2.8
1 gig kingston ram (2x512 dual channel)
120WD
160Maxtor
400W PS
XFX 6800GT


Thanks for the help

The first obvious question would be, did you completely remove the previous driver you had in your system before installing the new card?

well that fix did fix my issues with the new drivers in windows and frezzing up games on exit, but i still have the same screenshot problem.
