A default install of either Jessie or Stretch includes xserver-xorg-video-all,
and thus xserver-xorg-video-intel. Thus with your 3rd Gen Core, it's virtually
impossible that you weren't using the intel driver in Jessie, and unlikely in
It's simple enough to try the modeset(0) driver. Simply purge
xserver-xorg-video-intel, rename 20-intel.conf, and restart the xserver. Either
it's better, or it's not. If not, reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel, restore
20-intel.conf (or not), and restart the xserver.
If nothing helps, try going into desktop settings and disabling compositing. If
that doesn't help either, ask on intel-gfx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx which is a
hangout of Intel driver devs. Include 'lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA' output and
