Have you tried connecting the notebook to an external screen to see if the issue reoccurs.

This may be a coincidence or possibly the symptoms of a bad MB to screen ribbon/cable connection or damaged ribbon/cable itself.
It originally happened when I opened up my laptop wider than normal.
Please advise of the outcome of connecting to an external screen before anything further is suggested.

Yes this is a common occurrence with opening and closing a notebook lid, however it does not need to be opened too wide to cause issues (although it would not help) and normal everyday usage can result in the same outcome.
Not being able to connect a notebook to an external screen is a problem as this is a simple but effective way of checking if the issue is a ribbon/screen or in fact the video chip itself.
As you have no means of attaching to an external display I suggest that you find a local, reputable Tech store and have them check it for you, many would do this for free but please ask first, the next option is checking the video ribbon itself and this is a task best left to a suitably qualified and/or competent person.
Tip for you if you need and decide to check the video ribbon yourself, keep all the different size/shape screws in separate containers as putting too long a screw in the wrong place can ruin your MB, a disassembly guide is included in your user manual http://tim.id.au/lap...esario cq60.pdf
