If you have the MAC address you might be able to track it down if its ever used.
Also try contacting your manufacturer if you have any documentation or serial numbers of your laptop. Your manufacturer or retail store might have a service, or can track whether someone else re-registers it,

Besides that all you can really do is hope.
When an item is stolen many times its hard to track down because of the surplus amount of stolen items.

The MAC address i think is ur best bet, but you'd have to dig around and its not going to be worth it, because the mac address is officially embeded on your laptops hardware, Most thieves are not smart enough to realize that.

Can you trace a stolen toshiba satellite c655d-s5200


Not that I know of.

You can install a tracking software in the computer, for in case it's stolen, but this has to be BEFORE it is stolen.

Rest assured whomever stole it will get their just reward.
Karma, you know.

Homemade laptop Anti-theft program


0cc7878.jpgNobody would like to have their laptop stolen or any of a kind to be stolen for that matter.
So I thought of a HomeMade Anti-theft Laptop Security Setup where if ever your laptop gets stolen atleast there is a way to trace it and a chance of retrieving it.

Ingredients:

1 laptop
1 Outlook 2003/2007
2 Email Accounts
1 Internet Connection

First, you must have a working email account in your Outlook that can send & receive emails. Then set it up to Auto-Reply for the procedure click here http://dongkikz.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!940C0A5C3485C53D!205.entry.

Second, you must setup Outlook to open in Startup. Just Copy and Paste the Outlook icon in the Startup folder.

Third, you must have a second email address.

Lastly, A Website that can trace an IP address location like www.whatismyipaddress.com
(From here you must also learn how to look for the source IP with the raw source from an email details information )

How it Works !

If your laptop gets stolen. Send an email to it. The theft boots up your laptop soon after and by any chance his connected to the Internet, then your lucky enough. Your Outlook opens up in Startup receives your email and replies. You get the IP address and traces it ! Holy Jupiter your laptop could be in Venus by now.

But then again, this is just a HomeMade one. Something that just came out of the d0ngkikz? mind.
I just believe in the saying that Imagination is better than Wisdom.

"Great inventions always starts from the most simple ideas."

Any comment would be greatly Appreciated. Thanks!

My Dell vastro Laptop is stolen and i dont know the MAC Address of it so that i can trace it... Plz help me finding my lappy's MAC address... I have its serial no. And also its saved as a paired...


My my that is a terrible thing to happen, the only thing I can suggest is report it stolen give the serial and information to the police more than likely I hate to say this you may have to write this laptop off and purchase another one. Tracking them is difficult once they are out of your possession. Regardless if you had the MAC address even.
If you report it stolen if the police find stolen items they can track a recovery by identifying its serial number. So doing a report would and possibly beat a blank and who knows you may be surprised one day when you get a call is this your laptop? I hope this happens for you but it will not if you do not report it and register it with the police as stolen.
Sorry for your loss really.......John

Can we trace a laptop location if it is stolen? repl me on namrataapatil@gmail.com


If it is registered with a tracing company. The system works similar to vehicle trackers, when they are working they transmit to the net and an interegator will look for the IP address if it is activated.

Some one stolen my acer laptop pls any suggestios


My friend, no one is permitted to call you from this web site ... If you have not reported this to the police in your area, do so now! Then, keep an eye on auction and sales sites for a while for your computer ... Craigs list and e-Bay come to mind. I dont know where you live so cannot give more detailed information ... DO NOT post any more personal infomation on this web site, it is possible you will be vunerable to other issues ...

Thank you .

I lost my 4730 travel mate acer laptop how to trace it


I assume you mean you lost the whole laptop? If so there is no way to "trace it". If you have the serial number information you can contact acer about reporting it lost/stolen so if anyone tries to send it in for repair service they will know that way. Other then that you are out of luck. Hope this information has helped. Luckily you can get new laptops for as little as 300$.
Thanks and good luck,
Lee

Can i trace my stolen laptop


If for some reason the wireless feature is used and you remember your MAC address, you could check with local ISPs to help you trace it down, although it's very difficult to do so just like that.
