Please provide output from 'lspci -nnk | grep -A4 VGA' so that we can know
precisely which Intel gfx you have. If it turns out to be Ivy Bridge, then
that's what your Googling should include. Also find your Xorg.0.log and put it
on https://paste.debian.net/ so we can see whatever Xorg errors are produced.

ISTR recently seeing KDE people with sddm errors solve their trouble by
switching to a different display manager, TDM, lightdm, KDM, GDM, so including
sddm in your Googling too might produce fruit.
