My laptop is entering more than one character at a time when typing in my password for example its adding additional letters how can i turn this off


seems like something is ring with the keyboard, try an external keyboard, if the issue is still the same this will be a windows issue, once in windows tap on the shift key 5 times this will either deactivate sticky keys or ask you to activate sticky keys.
If it is not a sticky key setting issue then the problem most likely will be Hardware, did any liquid spill on your keyboard previously causing the key to malfunction causing the key to type extra characters?
If none then possible this is a faulty keyboard on the machine.

What does the insert key do?


Press and the text you type will over write what ever you have on the screen. This is typically used in most applications to "type over" existing text without moving the other letters/numbers/characters around.

This is my example of how the insert key works.
hit the insert key and position your cursor at the "w" in works.
Now type WOW!!.
You should now have:
This is my example of how the insert key WOW!!.

Clever these programmers. :)

Keep in mind it depends on the application you are running also.
Have fun!

My keyboard isn't typing most keys


I would reset the bios by using the jumper in the cabinet. Then make sure you have the correct type of keyboard selected and if all of that does not solve the issue, replace the keyboard.

Suddenly,nearly half of the keys type other characters !!!


You have a numeric keypad built into the keyboard, press the function button (FN) followed by the number lock button (num lock). Hope this helps.
