[OT] unable to record video on screen

I apologyze because I understand that maybe this is not the right newsgropu,
but I'm not able to find out a more appropriate one.

My problem: I'm unable to record any videos on screen, even if I've tried to
do it with a lot of programs, both free and shareware. I mean: if I try to
record a
video on my screen -a stream, a movie file, etc., which I can see without
any problem- the program (any program) records only an empty -black- image.
Details of my system:
 SYSTEM: IBM Thinkpad R40
XP Professional     Service Pack 2
DirectX 9.0c
CPU Type     Mobile Intel Pentium 4M,  2000 MHz (20 x 100)
System Memory   512 MB  (PC2100 DDR SDRAM)
 BIOS Type    Phoenix (03/23/05)
 Video Adapter  ATI MOBILITY RADEON (16 MB)
 Monitor  IBM ThinkPad 1024x768 TFT  LCD
Audio Adapter  Intel 82801DBM ICH4-M -  AC'97 Audio

I have  Kerio 4 and  AVG and MS Antispyware.
Among the programs I used, there are: CamStudio (which ran very well on
other systems), Bulent's  screen recorder, Windows Media Encoder, EZ Video
Capture and others. With every program the result has been an empty (black)
video image, as if  recording  the window where the stream or the file run
is forbidden.

Re: [OT] unable to record video on screen

It's called Overlay mode... a box is specified on the screen and the video
is rendered there seperately. It's why, when you move your video player
around the screen, the form moves smoothing but the video seems to jump from
place to place.

I don't think you can record those streams as long as your video player is
in overlay mode.

Thank you for your answer. So, there is no way to solve this situation? Or
disablimg overlay (how?) could help me?
