    I'm at his friend's house trying to fix up their SONY VAIO XP desktop computer. One thing I can't fix is that there is really fat line when I type instead of just a straight thin line. It's like a black square.

    click the "insert" button on the keyboard and report back what happens.

    I simularily have a Vaio Laptop which does this if i accidently press the insert button.

    I think this is what you have to do.

    Start => Settings => Control Panel => Accessibility Options => Display
    tab
    Cursor Options section => Width => set to Narrow
