Unknown Computer/Monitor Issue - PLEASE HELP

PROBLEM BACKGROUND INFO:
Hi prostars. I have an issue wherein which my monitor randomly morphs or switches into an odd "mode" of sorts. The picture suddenly becomes a super-imposed interlaced version of itself. So imagine stretching the monitor to double the width, then cutting it half, and layering 2 overtop of each other in alternating vertical strips. Additionally, the monitor BEHAVES/FUNCTIONS like the stretched out monitor wrapping around itself, where the mouse pointer can go through the left/right of the screen and come out on the opposite end respectively (like a dual monitor would, but all on the same "interwoven" screen). I haven't found a direct correlation in regard to the timing of this event, but it happens particularly frequently when I get out of "sleep" mode, however it happens increasingly at random intervals as well.
Also, the problem used to be a rarity, but since then the frequency of occurrence has increased to multiple times per day.
Lastly, the image corrects itself after approximately a minute; changing of the display settings and/or nvidia control panel settings does not seem to influence the problem.
It's rather hard to describe, so I've provided images taken with a camera (because screenshots come out looking completely normal), and also included an image to illustrate what I understand to be the case.
PNY nVidia Quadro4000 graphics card
Asus 27-inch VG278H LED 3D monitor
Intel i7 3770k Processor
Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE Socket 1155 motherboard
32 GB G-Skill Trident X memory
Seasonic Platinum 1000 Fully Modular 80PLUS Platinum 1000W PSU
Coolermaster Cosmos II case
The only other components I have are a LG Bluray/DVD reader/writer, & 2 crappy old monitors hooked up to an old Radeon card. (but they're all powered off, and not experiencing any problems).
Only the 3D monitor hooked up to the nVidia Quadro card is experiencing this issue.
What am I dealing with?
If anyone could NAME what I'm dealing with and/or provide any possible solutions, I'd be very greatfull.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY CONTRIBUTIONS. :)
