I just got this HP PAVILION DV6-3050ca and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do shift+insert on this thing. The insert key is primarly the prt sc button but in the fn it is impr. ecr and above the prt sc there is ins. So how do I get the ins to work I don't care about the other 2 functions.

This is so jacked at this point. HP had me return my new laptop to the store saying this was a hardware problem. New one has the same issue. Not happy. Not happy at all.

after, like two years, i finally got it working! it only seems to work on the notepad or docs but i'll take it.
but it was a little unclear; (oh it works in the calendar too)
the office button (for idiots like me) is the circle with the red, blue, yellow, greeen squares in the corner.
click this or you can press ALT+f to open that, then 'i' to open Word Options, then 'a' for Advanced settings, then ALT+ v for Overtype mode, then space bar to have overtype be controlled by the INSERT button.
after that, it should be as easy as hitting the INSERT button to get it to insert.
