I have a machine with an Intel 815 (82815 chipset) video card.

As far back as I can remember using Linux on that machine, the display 
you describe has appeared during booting.

The change that caused it to boot to a blank screen, also made the 
screen displayed during boot (the 4 flashing dots) finally become 
readable (at least, it was readable during shut-down after booting to a 
blank screen).

My system can (for the time being) continue using 14.04 by having locked 
the level of the xserver-xorg-video-intel package, as you apparently did.

That will keep the machine alive until 14.04 is no longer supported, 
since 14.10 also boots to a blank screen on that machine.
