Have you tried messing with resolutions/refresh rates?

Might also be a bad graphics card, I'm not sure.

When you say flicker for 5 seconds... do you mean they just turn off and on for a few seconds then display normally? Sounds like normal Windows things when detecting a display to me if that's the case.

like it use to just turn off for a few second then turn back on then be normal. But now its turn off and on multi times. then goes back to normal . like if its a normal thing that alright. But Kinda bothers my eyes from it flickering like this. and its new, like it just started a at most 2 weeks ago.

I think it depends how quickly the monitor responds, sometimes you get just one blink, but sometimes there could be several.  Its always been a bit of a pain when switching between different numbers of displays.

Router:  Intel Celeron N5105 (pfSense) WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (1.44Gbit peak at 160Mhz 2x2 MIMO, ~900Mbit at 80Mhz)

ISPs: Zen Full Fibre 900 (~915Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)

It's just your GPU and windows getting their shit together now that:

  1. The desktop is a different size
  2. The GPU needs to provide output to a different number of displays

Not really a problem, more of just a side effect of how you're using the system.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

Static buildup most likely.  Your DP cables may be backfeeding a little bit which will build up static over time.
