Have you reported it to your local police? FixYa has no way of tracking your laptop, even had you bothered to tell us what part of the world to start looking for it.

How can I track my stolen laptop Dell Inspiron 15 ?


If you inform all of the repair shops and had suitable password protection, it may turn up in bits at a shop. Don't know your country so I can't do more than suggest that you place the details publicly on Face book and twitter etc. Obviously tell the police.

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

I'm David from Kampala Uganda.I had my Compaq CQ62 stolen yesterday from Watoto Church where I volunteer. I want to know if there is a possibility of tracking it within Kampala. If I have its serial...


Unfortunately,unless you installed tracking software/hardware, there is no way to track it. The best thing you can do is to report it stolen (with serial number) to Compaq and local authorities.

MY ACER LAPTOP WAS STOLEN. IS THERE TRACKING HARDWARE ON THE STD SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE COMPUTER... IF NOT HOW DO IT TRACK IT WITHOUT IT??


I do not really think this sort of technology is really with us right now. For future reference , there is software you can install when it is in your possesion in order to log in to the computer if it is stolen such as preyproject.com

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.

Can i track my toshiba satelite a105-s4324 laptop that was stolen in international transit from the US to cyprus?


Computers can not be tracked what-so-ever unles steps have been taken to do so beforehand. The only way you could tell if it was possibly being used is if you had a instant messenger program that starts when the computer starts.

When the computer connects to the internet the instant messenger would show you as online. You could then possibly get the ip of your stolen computer and then try to locate it through help from your isp and a lawyer.

However stolen computer vanish faster then stolen cash. Hard drives are wiped and serial numbers are taken off.

If this was a business laptop or if you had insurance on it, report it and fill out a report where it was stolen.
