It was working great with Snow Leopard and still had all of the guys info on it. A fresh install of Lion a few hours later locks it with the message, "Hey user something already has this registered" then it was remote locked. I took it to the police and the serial number didn't come up in any stolen merchandise databases. They also called Apple and they said that it was not reported and suggested I go to an Apple store to see what they could do. The answer is - nothing really. They were not allowed to notify the original owner. He couldn't reset the firmware password - He said the only way to bypass it would be to replace the logic board for $450. Then he also couldn't give me any assurance that whomever remote locked the system couldn't do it again. So here I am with my $600 paperweight. Any suggestions? Anyone I can talk to at Apple to make progress with either contacting the original owner or getting this "soft" fixed? Update: Turns out it was one of two laptops stolen but they didn't have the serial number for this one in the report. So the original owner lucked out and I hope they are able to turn it over to her soon.
