Phone was accidently reset, but i can't get on the phone. why is it still asking for my email information if it has been reset?

It's for security. Just in case the phone was stolen, then reset by someone else. The email will confirm you are the owner. Wont hurt you to supply your email to protect you from *****.

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.

Bought an iPhone 4S and it's telling me to enter my icloud password something about being lost or stolen

In this case you have a expensive coffee coaster. Only previous or should I say current owner can unlock it or release it from his iCloud account. Otherwise you can sell it for parts (screen, battery, case, buttons etc. except for mainboard). This is a way Apple protects its customers. Only the rightful owner can use this device.

You can not just protect this section only you need to create a pin number on your phone settings.This will protect all your important info, but the downside is you will need your pin everytime you power up your phone.

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.

Sony vaio VGN FJ290P password reset sony vaio VGN FJ290P

I have set the password for administrator when i entered the bios set up. you can change its setting but not the configuration unless you've entered the password. you can't change the password with a new one if you cant enter the old password. Next time dont forget your password because laptops has its security even when stolen you cant open its bios set up if its protected by password. CMOS battery is in the mother board. You need a service technician to open your laptop to reset the bios setup battery.
