Hi,

Just by chance, are you running this on a Toshiba laptop? If so, then try removing the battery and waiting for about 2 minutes. For some reason, my computer, also a Toshiba, randomly produces kernel panics as well and the only way to fix it is to remove all power and do a half-reset. Is there any more information you can give pertaining to the problem? Like has this happened before? Is it a new installation? etc.


good luck,
rabbit2345
