I think this was a problem a long time ago. I forget what the exact cause was. IIRC it was something with the defaults for glReadPixels being different in different drivers but I thought I fixed it by explicitly setting whatever was causing the problem. What graphics card are you using?

Your driver info doesn't say "Microsoft GDI" does it?

Do lens flares work for you? That uses glReadPixels as well.

Go to a stock track, look at the sun and toggle lens flares in the advanced graphics settings.

Hm. Are you running anything that might intercept OpenGL calls?

You're using the in game screenshot button right? Or are you trying to use print screen?

What he means is, are you running a third party program that may intercept/receive Open Good Luck calls. Meaning another person is openly wishing you good luck and you receive the incoming call, causing interference with the games screenshot feature. This often causes issues such as screenshots coming out completely black.

A screen recorder, an effects postprocessor, an overlay, stuff like that.
