BillyDeLony,

Only laptops with LoJack activated can the system be traced. This is done for a fee. Laptops without LoJack installed cannot be traced. Ip and Mac Addresses can be changed. The Mac addresses because many systems, there are many that are duplicated.

Your system if stolen, you can Dell Report a Stolen System 

<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>

and it will be noted. A Police Report should also be done. If LoJack was installed, LoJack Report a Theft

If Dell Laptop Got Stolen, Dell Officially can help to trace it? If LoJack is not installed?
