Try purging xserver-xorg-video-intel and restarting the server. Last official release of that
driver was over 4 years ago.
I purged it but had to reinstall as the machine would only boot to
a command line without it and with nomodeset.
Maybe that's precisely the problem. Nomodeset is a cmdline (boot) parameter that blocks use of
both competent X drivers for Intel's current century GPUs, modesetting and intel.
But didn't you just say the last official release of the driver was 4
years ago ?
