I recently bought a Toshiba Portege 3010CT and noticed also that (in
text-mode) there are approx. one inch wide black borders around the
screen. However the BIOS has a "display stretch" -option which fills the
entire display. You can access the BIOS (at least in 3010CT) by holding
ESC while turning the system on. And don't forget to try different
screen modes with the svgatextmode -package.

You might also want to try toshset and toshutils -packages, which allow
changing some system settings without restarting the computer or entering
the BIOS. "The Toshiba Linux Utilities" -website could also be useful:
