I have a dual monitor system with my computer dualbooting ubuntu and windows 7. Whenever i boot into ubuntu it doesnt remember my resolution setting. For some odd reason when switch resolutions on the ubuntu side, I will see a semi corrupt (i can still make it out) image of whatever i was looking at on windows 7 (where i just rebooted from). Why is this happening? Does the gfx card have cache and is it just displaying it?

I did not install the propriety drivers on ubuntu.
