I am sorry that happened.


Unfortunately, neither HP or Microsoft can help you.


HP does not track stolen property.


IF you had set up "Find my Device" in Windows prior to losing control of the machine, Microsoft might be able to guide you in using that software to possibly track the system if it shows up on the 'net in your local neighborhood.  The range on "find my device" is limited.  Frankly, even if you had activated the software, it is unlikely the thieves are sitting conveniently next door to your house and using your computer on the Internet where you could find it.



What about the data?

Microsoft, although sympathetic as well, cannot retrieve data from a computer that is not in your control.


The caveat: 

If you use OneDrive and need help with that access, Microsoft might be helpful.
