As far as I k**w, there are ** databases available for checking this kind of thing. Even if there were, it would only be useful if the owner actually reported something as stolen.

Basic rule of thumb: If you're offered something like this and it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Sorry ** direct answer on this one.

How do I get a serial number on a laptop I bought and can't find paperwork, laptop stolen. Have receipt from store - Best Buy.


serial number and model numbers are usually imprinted on labels on bottom of laptops and also on a label placed on the retail box it was sold in.

If you happen to have registered with the manufacturer, you might be able to get them to lookup this information.

I want to lock my laptop as it is stolen by someone.


You can't. Your intent to lock it will not make it happen. There are a number of ways to lock your data BEFORE the computer is stolen, but not after.

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.
