First, I assume you mean the keypad Plus [+] key, not the Insert key.  All
keyboards have to have an Insert key. :-)

This section<http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/Menu:Tools#Remapping_.5B.2A.5D_and_.5B.2B.5D_when_using_Notebook_or_Mini_keyboard>of
the Wiki explains how to access and reprogram the equivalent key when
don't have a numeric keypad.  Basically you have to shift into NumLock mode
temporarily to access the equivalent of the numeric keypad [+] key, which
will be in a different color on some other key, such as the "/" or "?" key.

If you can't figure it out, please send me a photograph of your keyboard.
