I am having a problem with the screen turning colors and going black. I placed a piece of paper in the side of the screen just beneath the black rim and now there is only a black line across the middle of the screen. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

sounds like you have a loose connection ....either into the screen or into the motherboard....the connection between board and screen runs through the hinge brackets and often comes loose after machine has been opened and closed a lot.....need to be comfortable opening up laptops to check the cables as it can be tricky to get to the back of the screen where the end of the ribbon cable is..
You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover
the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make
sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along
the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive
screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside
of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus
two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all
the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end
and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will
see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will
