Windows 7: Windows Aero Wierd Tearing

Windows Aero Wierd Tearing

So if I move a window from my 144 hz monitor to one of my 60 hz monitors it gets laggy. I have also noticed that if I fullscreen a window on my 144 hz monitor that I will get some strange tearing in specific places when I scroll up and down. If I revert the 144 hz monitor down to 60 hz it goes away. It also goes away by switching to windows basic instead of aero? Does anyone else have experience with this? I am pretty sure it is a windows problem.

I looked it up and other people had a similar problem as well. Sadly not many people use monitors beyond 60 hz so I doubt that this will be patched anytime soon.

Can't record it for some reason. Fraps shows the picture normally. I will just not run two monitors for a little while. It only happens on certan web sites though. I am assuming that this is some problem with windows or some drivers.

Update: figured out that if I minimize the window on the 144 hz monitor it will stop tearing. But it will continue to tear on the 60 hz monitor minimized or not. I noticed that windows seem kind of "laggy" with different refresh rates on windows when moving them around on the slower refresh rate screens. I think that it has something to do with that.
