    I have a HP Elite book laptop which is plugged into an HP docking station.

    For about 3 years now it has been fine and running 2 monitors from the docking station, but recently one of the monitors is flickering quite badly.

    I've tried swapping the monitor, different cables etc to rule out monitor and cable issues, which only leaves it is one of the following:

    Laptop
    docking station
    or display settings

    But Now I done know what to try or do????

    So swapping the cables and moving the monitors has no effect, the problem is always with the left or right monitor?

    I'd suspect the dock.
