Acer laptop display goes off after some second

Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.

Only 1 of the 4 video screens is showing the windows desktop. All others are only showing the BIOS information for the video adaptor.

Toshiba password

You're most likely looking at the BIOS startup password. It will prompt before it even tries to start Windows. Most computers have a way to override this but more info will be required....make/model of machine would help greatly.
