If the items on the credit report are not yours, file a dispute with the credit bureau reporting same.  They then have to investigate and either verify or delete the item.

The credit bureau phone numbers  may be listed, too, so you may be able to ask someone about putting a fraud alert on your credit reports.  It may cost a small amount of money and it might be a bit of hassle since every time someone (even you) tries to open an account, YOU have to be notified and okay it.

If you social security number was on anything in your laptop, notify the Social Security Administration as soon as possible.  Do this before even calling the credit bureaus.

Hope your security was not compromised.
