You don't need to turn it off, just don't touch it.

No mouse control via wireless mouse, or touch pad


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE MAY HAVE DRIVERS OR IRQ THAT ARE CONFLICTING, TRY UNINSTALLING THE DRIVERS FOR YOUR WIRELESS MOUSE, AND REINSTALLING THEM, MAKE SURE THE WIRELESS MOUSE IS UNHOOKED BEFORE YOU REINSTALL THE DRIVERS.

How do i turn off the internal mouse so i can just use a wireless mouse instead


internal mouse? if you mean the touch pad or that red ball thing thats in the middle of our keyboard, then i don't think you can turn those off. try going to Start>Control Panel>Printers and other hardware. maybe the option will be in there. if you want to use a wireless you need the USB "thing" and plug it in your laptop. you might have to put in a CD and install it first.

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Touch pad refuses to work


Try going to Toshiba's support page and re-install the driver for the touchpad. If this does not work. You may need to replace the touchpad itself.

Touch pad possessed.


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Touchpad


This may be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. The touch pad either works or it doesn't, there's no in between, so if this doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the touch pad.
