If you don't see windows, then it's a BIOS password, and you would know if you set one. Unplug it and hit the power button, then touch metal, and pull the battery out for ten minutes. After you put the battery back in the motherboard, and plug it in you need to hit delete at start and enter the BIOS to set the time and date, then move over to exit and save changes.
As you describe your problem I can see that your laptop ask for password just in the begining, in black screen so you need a bios password. That's diferent from the password that sometimes windows ask to (usually user - password). Well you have to open the case of the laptop and locate a small circle battery, this is the bios battery. Eject this battery and the laptop's battery and unplug the power cord. Try 2-3 times to power up the laptop (without batteries or power supply, just for the capasitors to discharge). Wait 5 minutes. After that plug in again the bios battery, the main battery and the power supply. Start up your laptop. Just before Windows logo comes up hit del (or F2) repeatly in order to get in to bios settings. Find the command "load bios default" and hit enter. Adjust the date and time and any other settings you wish (boot order e.t.c.). Save the changes and reboot. As you can see you are ready.

When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you.
There is a jumper located on your motherboard that you need to use to reset your bios password. You can generally find this information in the manual that came with the notebook. If you don't have the manual you'll need to go to the toshiba website.
Please note that resetting a jumper on a motherboard is not the easiest thing to do on a notebook computer. You're talking about taking apart and putting on eback together. Be very careful not to let any static electricity hit the machine.
No hacks, or tricks will work with software, as the BIOS is specifically preventing you from booting ANYTHING.
Some laptops feature RESET buttons on the underside, or hidden under the battery to resolve this issue, but more than likely, the laptop must be opened up and have the CMOS battery removed temporarily to wipe the password.
