Can you edit your first message with only one question and also change title to one question ?
What gives
Code:
lspci  | grep VGA

I read that many people have problems with display with intel graphics.
Some people advice this workaround in xorg.conf :
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "DebugWait" "true"
EndSection

I am not sure where to put that config tweak you posted, as my file seems to use a bit different scheme. And yeah, I will remove all those other points too, just give me more time.

Is it possible to downgrade drivers/xorg version in order to track the problem? I am still not sure if it's kernel or newer drivers that are associated with it. My current guesses are: kernel, intel driver, X.org.

Thank you, previously I have completely omitted your post. My bad, as I didn't pay attention. Embarassed

Thing is solved now.
