Exclamation Deleting text problem

I have a problem with my microsoft word 2003. Whenever i highlight my text and press backspace, the words dont get deleted. I have to highlight and press DEL for it to be deleted. But it still works normally when I juz normally backspace a text. what should i do????? what settings must i make?? Normally if you highlight a text and type in other words, the highlighted text will be overwritten or something like that. But it isnt so for my case too... Need help here.

Have a look at Tools || Options, then click Edit tab, did you uncheck Typing Replace Selection accidentally?
