Question for those more savvy than I

Some people may find it funny that I, a person who works in the computer industry, would need to ask a question like this. To those people, I simply brush aside their mocking and ask the question again to see if they know the answer.

So, to which, the question: I have a DVD and I would like to take a few screen captures of that DVD. When trying to basic, obvious things like, uh, PrtSc, I get this wonderful screen capture of everything *but* what I want, which is conviently blacked out like it was copy portected, probably because it is. But I shall not want this to deter me, and thus I ask you, the people of whom may have experience on matters like this, if they have information on this.

Your video card needs to have overlay enabled.

So... Where would that setting be? And should I mention I am trying this on a laptop with a Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family video card?

It should be somewhere in the display properties or in the options of the program playing the DVD. I had the same issue earlier this year. I can't remember what I did, outside of finding the solution by Googling "enable overlay" and possibly the model of my video card...
