The MAC address of the LAN or wireless card is unique address (like a house number in your street in your town, state and country).
If you have not taken recorded this MAC address then you cannot supply this info.
There are millions of MAC address and Sony most likely do not have this info. If you have registered this laptop with Sony they might have this info.

SOURCE: i can not change mac address of wireless card

This post ONLY applies if you are running a version of linux on you computer, NOT windows.
First, you need to get a shell/terminal open (try pressing ctrl+alt+t) Next, you need to figure out what interface you want to change the MAC address for, so type: ifconfig You should get a list of interfaces, with the names in a column on the left side. Look for the one that has the MAC address you want to change. The name might be something like "eth0", but not necessarily. Now that you have the name, what you want to type next is: ifconfig {name of the interface} down ifconfig {name of the interface} hw ether {your new MAC address} ifconfig {name of the interface} up
I just have to say this: make sure you DO NOT type the {curly braces} or anything in them. You probably didn't, but I needed to say it anyway.
Hope this helped!

SOURCE: Have my sony vaio VPCEE31FX got bluetooth?

Looking over every specification page I could find. The answer is no, this laptop does not have bluetooth. However, you can purchase a USB bluetooth adapter and it will work fine. These adapters are available at most electronic stores or on line.

Hope this helps

How do I recover my stolen Sony vaio SN# S01-7002852. I recode in uganda

First you have to report in your local police station with your details & serial number. You have to register a complaint requesting the Sony team for the laptop MAC address. Sony will provide the MAC number and with that MAC address you can easly traceout your laptop.

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

Press ENTER. The MAC Address and IP Addresses will be shown. The MAC Address is the Physical Address for the device.

My laptop was stolen, the police said they can track it if i gave them an IP address, I dont know what the IP address is but I do have the serial number, how can I get the Ip address using the serial...

Stolen laptop can only be recovered if you have MAC address of laptop. IP adress are temporary and can be changed or altered, its not worthy to find IP instead try to get MAC adress.
If you have registerd your laptop with its Manufacturing Site like Lg, DELL etc then you can contact them and probably by providing them serial no. you can get MAC address. Every machine ha different MAC address and I am sure with your serial no. you can get this information from your dealer or manufacturer. GOOD LUCK

You need to contact the seller. If the laptop was not stolen, the seller will give you that information. If not, return it to the seller for a refund. There are a lot of stolen items auctioned through ebay and others. Legitimate sellers will help you.

I had a laptop stolen out of my car are there numbers that can be traced if i hava a regestration on it or am i just out a pc

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.
