finding stolen laptop and serial # help
by cachecreek - 8/7/12 9:57 PM
Pls excuse the lame question, but by diligent searching on the internet, I have learned things I didn't already know about tracking my stolen computer ... and am not willing to give up yet. Maybe someone in your community will give me information I haven't already pursued.
My ASUS laptop model K52F-A1 was stolen yesterday in N. California. I am searching sales sites such as Craigslist. Any other ideas here?
I've filed a police report and entered the computer on the stolen computer database. Any other ideas?
One specific problem is finding the serial number on the ASUS. My computer store found my date of purchase and model/make, but only knows part of the serial number, provided from their record of computers received from ASUS that month. The police want a complete serial number and ASUS isn't helpful. Any ideas on finding this?
Finally, I am using my dropbox software to watch and see if the IP address changes on this computer...that was an example of a tip I got on the internet.
Thanks for any help - and please don't scold me for leaving the laptop in my car - I already feel stupid about that.
