Please slow down when you are trying to explain your problem. Please be more complete with your details. I had to read your post four times and I'm still not sure if I understand the problem.

Print Screen takes a snapshot of the entire viewing area.
ALT + Print Screen takes a snapshot of the active window.

This functionality is built into the OS and should work without issue.

I know you said it worked before, but the only thing that makes sense is your ALT key may not be functioning properly.

Try doing CTRL + ALT + DEL and see if you get the normal response.

I could be wrong, but what do video drivers have to do with it?

ALT + Print Scrn is a windows command, which is built into the OS and doesn't utilize the Video Driver.

Alternatively, I can vouch for SnagIt, product is amazing :)
