    I have no idea how/when this started happening, but I have recently reinstalled Leopard and I just tried screenshoting my desktop and it came out all jumbled.

    My Snow Leopard Beta install doesn't have this problem so I think that rules out hardware defects.

    I have never heard of this problem before... any suggestions?

    I think you have entered the Matrix ;)

    Hmmmm, don't know
    You have no problems with your screen, right?
    Just with the screen shot?

    What are you using to get the screen shot?
    Keyboard shortcuts?
    Grab?
    3rd party App?

    Hehe.. I wish :)

    Yeah, the screen is fine. I just used cmd+shift+3 to take that screenshot.

    Hmm this is getting weirder all the time - this happens while taking screenshot of the whole screen either with cmd+shift+3 or Grab. It also happens with cmd+shift+4 while selecting a part of the screen. It does NOT do this, however, when using cmd+shift+4 and then pressing the spacebar and selecting a specific window.

    Hmmmmm

    You can try the old standards

    Resetting the PRAM
    What is stored in PRAM

    Or and Archive and Install of Leopard

    Or you could create a new account and see if does it from there too

    Well I'm pleased to say that resetting PRAM seems to have fixed it.

    Thanks for the help :)
