HPZR30w monitors blink intermittently

I have one hp 3065 monitor and 3 HPZR30w monitors. The 3065 has no problems but the HPZR30w monitors blink intermittently, from one blink per 5 hours to one blink per 10 minutes. The blink is a flash to black then back to normal.
I am running 2 hp3800 nvidia cards in a Z800 workstation.
HP has replaced the monitors, video cards, powersupply, and system board.
They can't figure out how to fix this problem.
Can anyone help me?

Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

So you have - NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800? Try the latest full nVidia driver rather than the HP version.

GeoCFI, ,
Sounds like a power issue, maybe a momentary lag in power, how you do you have these 3 monitors connected to a power source?
On a power board all together or with some other hardware, if an airconditioner cycles on may interfere? Or some other hardware.
The fact it occurs simultaneously on 3 monitors could be the connection/cabling to the board is faulty or loose??
Heat issues.
Could you describe the connection, 2 monitors on each card?
My line of thinking 1 monitor differs from 3.
If all were the same brand?
I dont know how one would diagnose this apart from testing two monitors at a time with the same brand.
Run windows 7 resource monitor live on the desktop at all times.

I tried all of the above and none of them helped, HP is sending me a new computer, in the meantime, don't buy HP, buy Dell or any other brand.
HP techs don't have any idea what's going on.
