BIZZARE DUAL MONITOR GLITCH

I have two old CRTs both Veiwsonic the A90f and A95f. one is plugged into my 9800GT and the other the internal Nvidia 980a.
Both have the most up to date drivers.

the problem im experiencing is that the monitor plugged into the internal card is
getting this weird anomaly where it looks like its opening or running a program for a fraction of a second.
It will do this for maybe 2 seconds at a time every 5-60 seconds
The screen flickers and glitches out without any noticeable lasting effect other than to piss me off :) .
It only starts doing it after my computer has been in sleep mode or if I have had that monitor turned off for a while.
If I "remove" and then reinstall the device the problem goes away for a few minutes.
If I uninstall the drivers and reinstall them it goes away for a few minutes.
The problem looks most like if a some sort of command line bat or some sort ofr whatever thingy is running for a few milliseconds.
Naturally I tried to see if it would show up in taskmanager... nothing...
I have scanned my system with the most up to date version of PCTOOLS spyware doctor virus protection and run multiple "chekups" with toolwiz.
Ive come to the conclusion that it is not a program or virus issue but possibly some sort of memory failure or driver conflict thats causing the problem.... Im betting theres possibly some way to adjust my registry to correct the problem

PLEASE help its super duperly annoying.


below is a paraphrased dxdiag
let me know if there is anything else I can provide:

If you switch the monitor connections from one GPU to the other, does the problem "move"? If so, then you have a likely monitor issue. If it doesn't move, then the issue is likely with the GPU itself,
