Track stolen notebook computer
Posted on 2007-04-01
My laptop was stolen 2 days ago, it was a Dell Latitude D510. I've already notified the authorities and Dell about this. I don't know if they would be too keen to pursue this but I've very important documents and financial info on it so is there any way to track it through a MAC address, IP address, or a windows XP serial number? My ISp says they communicate to the cable modem and so can't directly track my laptop. Is it true or was it just one uninformed customer service rep? BTW I didn't have any of those tracking softwares like LoJack or Computrack on my laptop.... I wish I had.
Please let me know different ways to track and people I should approach. Any help would be appreciated.
