Had same issue - on 1805-s253 - had to replace the inverter - there was a recall from Toshiba on that part for that series - you find sources for the part via a google of '1805-s253 inverter'

I have a acer aspire 5720 and I went to turn it on and it turns on but nothing at all comes on the screen

If the fan runs and the keyboard lights up with hard drive noises, the screen is probably faulty. Shine a bright light at the screen, that will tell you if the inverter has failed or not as if you can see something in the background, the screen is OK it is the inverter.

Screen divided into 2 mirrored sections.

This sounds like a hard drive failure. You can press f8 to enter safe mode with networking during post. If it boots to windows,then go online & download the video driver from nvidia,install it & reboot. If that doesn't work,try re-formatting. If it won't do that then try a new hard drive. I have the software needed to test the hard drive,but it's for commercial use only. This is the back yard method.

When i turn on my computer everything comes on but my hard drive and cd rom i have tried changing cables and when then computer is on if i unplug the flat grey cables they will turn on but when i reconnect...

Sounds like the hard dribver may be bad. Their are site to download software that wil check a hard driver without windows,just for a disk.  Try:  for seatools, for example to check the hard drive. The other possibility is that the gray flat cable is upside down or damaged or that the cable socket is. Another thought . You do have the hard driver turned on in the BIOS setup screen,corrct. In other words, this is somethng that just hapened to a working computer w/o any changes made by you.

Hello. Try a different hard drive. I have only seen a couple machines do this, but replacing the hard drive fixed it both times. Thanks!

Grey screen

Are you able to adjust the contrast or brightness? Try to turn them down to about 50%.
