What you will likely find is that the bottoms of your hands are touching the trackpad causing the cursor to jump around, this is very common with laptops. You can often disable the trackpad if you will be typing for a while or if you use an external mouse. Most Toshiba laptops have a "hotkey" to disable the trackpad temporarily. The ones I have seen are usually on F9, so you hold down the "Fn" key (bottom left side next to Cntrl), then press F9. This is a toggle and will enable and disable the trackpad. I almost always use a mouse with my laptops just for this reason. Some laptops, (usually HP) will have an actual button near the trackpad that will disable it temporarily for extended typing.

The trick is often to just learn how to type without letting the bottoms of your hands touch the pad, and you will find this issue disappears.

Usually removing the driver and reinstalling fixes this sort of bug.

Did you download the system board drivers and video drivers for Win 8 to a USB stick first?

Find out which driver is incorrect. I would check the display/motherboard drivers.

Windows 10 is the reason. It has picked either the wrong drivers or the wrong resolution. Start up in safe mode and go to your manufacturers web site to download the correct drivers.

Type the password and then you can remove or change it.

Toshiba... | Answered on Oct 02, 2015

In some cases its removing the CMOS battery inside the laptop and powering on with no main battery and no charger connected. Before putting it back together. The CMOS will not only loose the password, but it will also loose its settings including the time and date.

If you can load the laptop otherwise, Toshiba used to offer a windows tool for changing some CMOS options including unconditionally changing the password.

take the battery out first then try again and if it gets stuck unplug it then wait 20 secs. then plug the power ONLY back in and try again. this is a very common and old problem with windows. Good Luck.

This can happen if the had drive fails, or if the BIOS "forgets" what device it is supposed to boot from. That can happen if the motherboard CMOS gets reset or if the CMOS battery wears out. Go into the BIOS and check that the hard drive is being recognized. This is usually depicted on the main screen. If it is not seen, there is a good chance there is a hard drive problem. If is IS there, then check in the advanced options to ensure that the hard drive is listed as the first boot device.
