If you had setup the laptop with a Power on Password and a hard disk password, then your laptop would have been protected/locked and no one could gain access to your laptop and hard disk without these passwords.
Sorry there is no way anyone can track or block your laptop once it leaves your hands.
I suggest on your next laptop you set the Power on Password and hard disk password or at least encrypt sensitive data on your hard drive.

Bios password on toshiba


Some Toshiba laptops come with a system BIOS password, making anyone without the password unable to get past the BIOS screen at system startup. This is a strong security measure, as it renders a stolen computer useless unless the password is known. If you have a Toshiba laptop and want to change the BIOS password, you can quickly do it.

1. Power on the computer while holding down the "Esc" key. Enter your current password when prompted and press "Enter."
2. Press "F1" to enter the BIOS setup menu. Highlight "REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your password and press "Enter."
3. Restart the computer while holding "Esc" and hit "F1" again to enter the BIOS menu. Highlight "NOT REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your new password and press "Enter." Type the password again for verification and hit "Enter." Press "End" to save the changes, and "Y" to exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Password bios


If you have "forgotten" the password, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner (and not a thief in possession of a stolen laptop) and make a telephone-call to TOSHIBA, and they can help the registered owner with the password.

Can i unblock my blackberry once its been reported stolen?


Yes you can block it if the serial # and your phone is registered at the Telecommunications department of your country here in the Philippines, Cellphone owners specially the rich person registered their cellphone to the NTC(National telecommunications company) were if ever their cellphone was lost or stolen they can immediately call the NTC to request to block their cellphones...This is the reason why a lot of cellphone owners assigned a security code for their cellphone so in case it was lost or stolen the person who will use the cellphone need to unlock the phone for them to be able to use it...

How to remove toshiba a200 model the password after power on?


Press the appropriate key to enter BIOS setup.
Enter the current password, to allow you to access BIOS setup.
Then, set a new password.

The password exists to prevent a thief in possession of your laptop from using the stolen computer.

Find your original bill-of-sale, and telephone Toshiba, and they will help the registered owner in resetting the password.

How can i block my stolen mobile phone even if its not registered but i have the IMEI number


you can report the phone stolen to the police..they will enter is into that national database and call your provider and let them know it was stolen.
if the phone is unlocked, all the person has to do is put a valid sim in it and the phone will work for them.
But if they get caught by the police at least it will be reported stolen.

I hope you wrote down the serial number before it was stolen - even if it was registered, they still need to serial number to look up the product/registration info - call Apple asap
