Other than the obvious making sure you slect color printing, you should play with the contrast, that's what's causing the grey background on the Toshiba. I think it's actually trying to print B&W but the contrast is giving you a grey background.
Change your default print settings to print color:
Right click your printer in the printers folder,select Properties and choose Color Profile(or similar) from the available tabs. You should also set the preferred printer as the default, Word doesn'tlike to ask about your favorite printer it just wants to print to it for some reason.

Actually, i want to have it print in black and white. The contrast as set as the maximum amount allowed.

Since you want a black and white image, I suggest that you change the image properties to a black and white image.

If that does not produce the desired results, import the image into a image editor, and convert it to black and white there. You will have more control over the contrast and intensity there.
