Boy am I in a pickle. Last night as I was avidly working on my senior design portfolio, my mac totally crapper out on me. Indesign ceasec to function, firefox wouldn't open, and the whole system as a whole ran extrememly sluggish. The last big change I performed on my mac was the installation of Suitcase Fusion 2. I tried reinstalling CS4 from a disc, but it kept getting stuck loading the installer, I finally gave up and decided to restore my mac from a time machine backup. At this point it was 4AM, so I chose the most recent backup before I installed suitcase, and went to bed. When I woke up for work at 7:30, it said it was ready for restart, so I excitedly sat down and clicked restart. I got my startup chime and thr apple logo, and then the grey screen wiped down. Kernel Panic. I restarted it a few more times, unplugged all peripherials, and each time I got thr panic message. So, tired and distraught, I tried another backup, this one from a few days ago, let it run, and went to work. I just got home, restarted the newly restored computer, and got the same damn result. At this point in time I am doing a fresh restore from the CD, and am going to try doing the time machine recovery during startup. Anyone else have any other ideas or suggestions. I have 2 months till I graduate college. Not a great time for a computer issue like this. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. BTW, ive googled around, but haven't found any solutions, so that's why I am here seeking help. Thanks in advance for any help offered!!!! P.s. Sorry for the typos, my only means of a computer right now is my iPhone.
