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.

How do I unlock a stolen computer?


The school cannot 'block' the computer.If you are asking how to get round a password, so you can use a stolen computer, you are on the wrong site.That is a criminal activity. You would be far better contacting the school and telling them you bought it innocently.
If you bought stolen property you should be trying to get your money back from the seller. Apart from that, are there no police where you live? They are the ones that are interested in people that sell stolen property.

Somebody has stolen my lgkp500 cellphone. when i tried to dial my cp,someone answered the phone. she was telling that she's going to txt me where she is. it took 3 weeks from the day when my cp had gone,...


Contact your network provider and ask them to block your IMEI number. This will prevent the thief from using another SIM card in your phone. The phone will no longer be able to make calls unless you authorize it to be unblocked.

While you are talking to your network provider, write down the IMEI number of your phone then make a report to the Police. Sometimes stolen phones are recovered and returned if the original owner has reported it stolen.

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

My notebook has been stolen can i block it or trace it


Some newer systems came equipped with a limited subscription to Lojack - an electronic tracing service. Depending on where you live, you can try to use the service if you signed up.

I can't imagine how the police could consider a theft of this value being a civil matter unless you didn't report it for a year, at least in the USA.

Compaq cq50 laptop has been stolen can it be blocked or traced


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.
