Stolen laptop - deactivation of the operating system to prevent future use.

Greetings,

I learned my father's cell phone was stolen a couple of weeks.  Us, father, sister and myself all have / had the same laptop and (update for win 7 since vista) on a license for 3 users.  Is there a process with Microsoft where they can disable the OS of the stolen laptop?  This process will not affect the other mobile OS licenses?  I ask because we wish to re - use the operating system on another laptop of replacement.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Arthur Hubbard

Nope. Nothing can be done. Who stole the computer allows you to use it.

I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 when it is released, but just recently started having problems with scanning.

    Reboot, or power on the laptop and immediately after that the Sony Vaio logo disappears, press the F10 key several times. This brings you to the built-in recovery Partition.

    You can reinstall the operating system from there.

    I bought a presario cq43-412tu. all the operating system supports this laptop. ?

    Hello

    Do you not need to run all the operating systems on the machine? With the help of VMware or similar is the way to go, but with this card, you don't have much choice, you must upgrade first to 8 GB of RAM. It comes with FreeDOS, you need at least a host operating system in order to run the virtual machine.  At this point, Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate is the starting point.

    Good luck.

  • Hard drive swapping and the operating system between two laptops of R61e

    I have a R61e who broke chassis. Not a left hinge broken, but broke up chassis where the left hinge connects.

    I have the opportunity to buy a used one with no operating system.

    Both are of type 7650 and all have two 80 GB hard drive.

    Will it work if I just reverse this HARD drive with the operating system for the new portable computer?

    Yes, it should work without major problems.

    In the worst cases, you need to update to a couple of pilots.

  • Transfer the profile from one hard disk to another without launching Firefox or the operating system.

    I just got a new laptop because my old card mother fried on my desk. The old master by car is very good and I have a transfer kit that I can use to transfer some files I need. I can't figure out how to transfer my Firefox profile on the new laptop computer. I can not locate where the files I need transfer and do not know what files those who would. Only article I could find here requires being able to either launch Firefox or the operating system. I can't do either so help please.

    Thank you!

    You will need to take ownership of the files if you do not have permission to copy files. You need to do when running Windows Explorer as an administrator.

  • Equium A200 - how to get the operating system?

    Hi, my son has just been given an A200 and we put in place a new disk hard in, but we do not have the recovery disks. Anyone know how I could get my hands on copies or how to download the operating system and then is just a matter of inserting the disc?

    Tony

    Hey Buddy,

    First of all I must say that it of not possible to download the operating system. It s just preinstalled on your laptop and you can find it on Toshiba Recovery disk as well.

    If you don t have a recovery disc, you can order one from Toshiba but I m not 100% sure if it of possible old Equium A200. Just check the online store:
    https://backupmedia.Toshiba.EU/landing.aspx

    If you can t order it, ask a service provider authorized in your country. Maybe they have such a disc and can give you.
