What do you mean by "the program asks for a backslash"? If you are
referring to a shortcut: those can be customized (have a look at the
manual). If you are referring to LaTeX sources, there the backslash is
very common as command character.

However, I can't believe that they ship a laptop without the ability to
type a backslash character. Maybe it's not written on the key itself,
but have a look at your operating system's key assignment of keys table
(BTW: this is typically language-specific). Sometimes (e.g. on German
keyboards), it requires some weird combination of keys (like AltGr+?).
