When applications or I manually select lower resolutions it will only show in the top left corner of my screen with the correct amount of pixels. There are streaking colors coming off to the right. This happened to me on some older versions and was correct through the 11 and 12 series.

I'm not sure if its supposed to be showing that second unclaimed monitor or what but it seems like the correct driver is enabled. I tried to look for the xconf in the normal place but nothing was there so I guess that isn't around anymore.
As a side note scaling is enabled in the bios and works properly for the bios screen alternate install CD.
Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this?
