The logs confirm that your system thinks another display is available.
I assume that there isn't? If so this is a known issue with the intel
driver and bug 25913 has been reported upstream and assigned to the
Intel folks. It might be helpful if you could contribute anything to

xrandr --output TV --off should turn off the non-existent display and
give you a normal screen. Alternatively, a patch exists that disables
the problematic detection code entirely.
