Contact HP directly, contact MS directly.
I don't think in either case there' s much they can or will do, but you can at least make sure you're registered as the owner.
See this link and this link.
You may also wish to register your information on one or more of the available stolen computer registries available online, such as this one.
Please also see this article on identity theft monitoring services.
For future reference, read this article on encryption, and consider using something like this.
And of course change your passwords, etc, etc...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Some newer systems came equipped with a limited subscription to Lojack - an electronic tracing service. Depending on where you live, you can try to use the service if you signed up.
\015\012I can't imagine how the police could consider a theft of this value being a civil matter unless you didn't report it for a year, at least in the USA.
