Find the F-Lock button and hit that. It will toggle you between the primary and secondary functions of your F keys.

So basically, hit the F-Lock button, then the INS button.

Use the CD to install the drivers for the wireless peripherals.

Insert batteries into the keyboard .

Use a screwdriver to remove any screws that hold the battery bay covers closed.

Press the "Sync," "Connect" or "Pair" buttons on the keyboard , depending on your model.

If present, press the "Connect" button on the wireless signal receiver as well.

Your wireless keyboard set is now connected.

If you have Word 2007 on your computer, the insert key is controlled in Word. While in Word, left click on the big circle but at the top far left of the menu (next to "home"). A menu box will open. At the bottom of the box is "Word Options", click on that button. In the far left column you will see "Advance", click on that and to the right will be a selection menu. Check the boxes "Use the insert key" and "Use overtype mode". This should work.

I'm not sure if you are saying that your laptop does not have an Insert button or if your insert button isn't working.
The question here is what version of Word are you using?
In Word 2007 they disabled use of the Insert / INS button. If you wish to turn overtype mode on you now need to do the following -
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button default.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Word Options.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. Under Editing options, select or clear the Use overtype mode check box.
You can turn the use of the Insert button back on here.

Insert or over-type feature

I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and it has a "F lock" key. This key has to be set on "Off" to let it know that I want to use the Print Screen function versus the Insert function on the same key. May be your keyboard is the same way.
