Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Sorry, but this is only a community forum staffed by volunteers and we can do nothing to track or recover missing property.

 

In addition, there is no way to track a laptop unless you had installed special tracking software.

 

What I recommend is the following:

1) Contact the local law enforcement authorities about the loss  -- provide them all the information they need and show them proof of ownership. You will most likely need to this to have then return the laptop to you if they find it

2) If the laptop is found and returned, contact Absolute Software to see about getting Lojack for Laptops for it. That enables you to report a stolen laptop and then locate it, once it is then connected to the Internet.

---------------------------------------------

I think THIS article honestly portrays the situation: https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-track-stolen-laptops-with-a-mac-or-ip-address

Read the information in Step 2.

Sorry, but the only REAL way to locate a laptop is if you have something embedded in it that allows you to find it -- and products like Lojack for Laptops provide that feature.
