    Dead notebook

    I have a HP 6910p, I acquired it from my previous employer, it was a backup. I am no longer with them and I still have the PC, somehow it was lost in their system when I relocated.

    Acquired laptop

    I believe the simplest thing to do would be to pack it up and send it back to your previous employer along with a note asking them to send you another one.

    If I understand this correctly, you have what is essentially a stolen computer, since it belongs to the company that you used to work for, and you want us to help you get it working again... Quite briefly, we don't do that here...

    It is quite possible that it has protection built in that allows the company to essentially turn it into a doorstop with a remote command when they find that it is stolen, so do you need a doorstop??
