Also it is quite common for the video connector from screen to mobo to come loose after excessive opening and closing...if the above advise doesn't yield this may be the problem esp. if you are seeing multi colors at bottom or middle of screen and random black outs..do you notice an improvement if you move the screen one way or another slightly (ie back or towards you)??..From experience laptop repair is not for the faint hearted so if you attempt to resolve the issue yourself bear in mind that there are many tiny screws and you may have to get stuck in a bit to find the screws that hold the screen and perimeter casing together...have fun, ground yourself and good luck..:-)
