Question about HP Computers & Internet
It was a HP Pavillion.7360V76 LPTP HP 3/500 17.3 HD LED. Thats the description.on the paperwork that I have also have the serial # and model # ans an item #. I was going to download the PC lowjack the day it was stolen. Unfortunatly I was to late. Its amazing how if there had been a murder involved in the theft they could find it or the same with a cell phone. Since it was just a theft , Im told to wait and see if it turns up in a pawn shop..With technology today as advanced as it is you would think they could find a simple lap top. Thats my problem and thats why Im asking the experts. Can you help me.
A mac address is like an internal serial number, but I doubt you documented the mac address. IF you did, a skilled security professional/hacker could probably figure out how to see it based on the email addresses in use on the laptop, theif's email address + the address where you think the machine is being used and the service provider. It would take a lot cooperation to pull all this together, but you might be able to get the police to consider looking into it if you can provide this information as "proof" of the location of the laptop. Just a thought....

Sorry to hear that. Yes. There are ways to hack thru the log on screen. Start keeping an eye on any credit card/bank/debit accounts for unauthorized activity. Changing passwords on any important online accounts like online banking accounts would be a good measure as well.

You are on shaky legal grounds, unless you have proof that it is your computer and have grounds to have a search for your personal information on that computer. That person could have also wiped the computer clean and reinstalled the Windows operating system.
I suggest you monitor your financial affairs closely to see if there are any unauthorized access to your accounts and credit cards, then you will have grounds for fraud investigation.
I think you should have a talk with a solicitor, this could be the least cost in the long run, especially if you have banking details on your computer.
When you get a new computer or your one back, you can protect the information on your computer and hard disk by placing a Power on Password on the laptop and a Password on the hard disk.
This will prevent unauthorized access to the laptop and hard disk. Even if the hard disk is removed and placed into another laptop, the data is locked and cannot be retrieved without the password.
These password should be recorded and placed in a safe place because if forgotten there are no backdoor passwords available.
Best of luck, I hope thinks turn out OK for you.
