Contact HP directly, contact MS directly.
I don't think in either case there' s much they can or will do, but you can at least make sure you're registered as the owner.
See this link and this link.
You may also wish to register your information on one or more of the available stolen computer registries available online, such as this one.
Please also see this article on identity theft monitoring services.
For future reference, read this article on encryption, and consider using something like this.
And of course change your passwords, etc, etc...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

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.

My Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC keeps shutting down. Sometimes right away sometimes after a few minutes. The left side of laptop seems to get hot while the right side stays cool. Can You please...


Hi:
You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!

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.
