Tracking a stolen laptop?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by philozeppelin, Jul 3, 2006.

  1. So, someone broke into the house we just moved into and stole a laptop. We
    had 40+ gigs of photos on that computer from the last 10 years or so and only
    want those photos back.

    The laptop has a wireless card built in and we assume that the thieves may
    try and use it before dumping it at a pawn shop.

    Anyone have any ideas on tracking it?

    Thanks for any help.

    You're in the wrong place for tracking a lost
    laptop!

    I'm sorry for your loss and sincerely hope that you have backups. If not,
    start now.

    Unfortunately I don't think there's any way you can track it unless
    you have some specific device in there used for tracking.
