System boots up in Clone Monitor mode (atiFireGL8800)
I installed an Audigy2Platinum(internal) sound card a while back. I don't that this is related, but soon after this problem began:

My system will boot up in "Clone moniter mode" under:
DisplayProperties/Settings/Advanced/ati-Dualscreen...

This causes my system to startup at the lowest possible resolution and refresh rate. I have to manually go and select "Disable Clone monitor mode" under the dualscreen settings and restore my display resolution, etc... when this happens. It will boot fine after that , but the problem eventually occurs again and I have seen nothing else on my system to hint at how this is possible as I only have <one> monitor plugged in.

When this began, it occured rarely, but lately it has happened increasingly more often. (1 in 4 boots as opposed to 1 in 50 when this began months ago)

ATI tech has been absolutely useless. Any suggestions?
