Try isolating the problem:
* Can you insert links in other Excel documents on that machine still?
* If you copy and paste the Excel spreadsheet into a new one can you insert hyperlinks?
* Is the file saved as .xls or .xlsx (not .csv etc)?
* Is the spreadsheet locked down at all (locked cells etc)?
* Does Ctrl + K (the shortcut to addd hyperlink) work?

If it doesn't work in other sheets try a repair install of Office, or a full uninstall/reinstall. If it does work in new sheets figure out if it is a problem with the format, or locked cells etc. If it's not, I'd give up on figuring it out and just copy and paste into a new spreadsheet and go from there.
