    I think you may have the overwrite function enabled.

    To cancel it on my laptop I have to press the 'insert' key. If yours is like mine this is on the delete key and so to access it you have to press the function key and the del/insert key together.

    Hope that makes sense!

    You are looking for a key with "Ins" on it. It may be a multi-function key and Stroppy Bird has said or it might not.... every keyboard is a bit different.
