Answers :

I believe you have not installed the display driver for this machine

and the resolution is set to 800 by 600
whereas you need to setup to 1024 x 768

If you go into the bios of the laptop there is generally a feature in the bios that will shrink / enlarge the screen size ( to get into your bios check or read the manuals for your laptop it is generally F2 or F12 or the DEL ( also known as the DELETE Button ) not backspace !!

It should tell you just before it boots into windows what keys to press to get into the bios and there should be a bios setting.

If that does not help post back and let me know.

There is driversguide.com and there are also a few applications that will help you install the correct drivers short of that if you post back with the exact model of your toshiba I can help you find the correct drivers.
