I am having alot of trouble with this error, i have reinstalled Garry's MOD where the problem occurs, Got new chipset,Got net drivers and have an upto date Direct X. It seems alot of other people are having the same problem and the solutions that work only owrk for certain things but i am really gatting annoyed with this error which crashes Garry's MOD ervery time about 10 seconds once i'm on a server i am open for suggestions and anything with might help will be apreciated very much. Ihave read alot of fourms about this problem but most things have not worked for me. Please help!!
Always happened for me, when I run a program in background using alpha blending. But as far as I see, you aren't running such a program: Tip: Stop all applications besides steam and try. Still nothing?: Uninstall all modes and try. Works? Reinstall mod by mod and start gmod after each mod reinstallation. Finally, you will find the mod which creates that error.

This happened to me while the game was generating some spawn icons,I have a Nvidia 6800.

Try -dxlevel 8 then :) Edit: Does it happen after you try and do something or just at random times?
[QUOTE=Colonel_Veer]Try -dxlevel 8 then :) Edit: Does it happen after you try and do something or just at random times?[/QUOTE] It's seemingly random.
i have directx 9 and it still comes up with the error, even though it's a direct 8 error well if that what DX8 means in the error [b]Edit:[/b] i tried uninstalling the mods, still hasnt fixed it :( i uninstalled all of steam and all my games, then while it was uninstalled i deleted every trace of stea and the games, i reinstalled steam and garry's mod. Error still happened.. Now i am getting another error i don't know if they are related but my pc crashes and comes up with a blue screen saying: Nv4_disp The device driver got stuck in an infinate loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Check hardware device vendor for driver updates.. well i got some new drivers and installed them but they havent seemed to install properly and steam says to uninstall drivers before installing new ones.. I have no idea how to do this so please could someone tell me how but still that might not work.... My pc is only 4 months old it should not be acting like this.. :(
I have the same problem. It happened one day and now I get the error everytime I load a dod or cs map. Because it happened out of the blue, I'm assuming it has to do with something I installed or removed.
yes proebly but i don't know about mine my pc seems to be getting worse, it happens more on Roleplay maps on Garry's mod
I get that same problem too. But it seems that when i reboot my PC it works, i haven't really had any major problems. Anyway when i do restart my PC and i start garrysmod, everything runs smoothly;but I recently installed the phx mod, and I added to my addons folder. i restart garrysmod, and in game it shows the files but all the icons and spawn items come up as error. I tried clicking rebuild icons but it still didn't budge.. i was wondering if that "failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer" has anything to do with it? and last of all i downloaded the phxmod files twice. Any help will be appreicated Thanks!
This problem has something to do with your videocard conflicting with your pc or something. I used to have this problem when i had a Geforce 7300SE, but when i bought the new geforce 8600GTS, the problem never showed it's face again in my gmod. So, consider buying a new videocard, or search the web for answer, but i failed to find any :(
Got this problem on a 8800 320mb
I'm having ths problem on a Geforce Go 7400
i have got it on a few css maps. it is annoning to have it come up
I fixed it by getting the latest version of DirectX 9 (April 2007) Kind of. Now instead I get "Internal driver error in IDirect3DDevice9::Present()"
Hey guys. I don't mean to revive a dead thread or anything, but I just had this problem too, along with the BSOD (nv4_disp). According to some of my web searches, I think it has to do with the motherboard or something about the video card overheating. Check this link out: [url]http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=40753[/url] Although, when I set the launch options to DX7, it didn't crash like it used to, so this problem may not apply. Also note that the nv4_disp.dll infinite loop problem has been recorded on tons of video cards, at least by Nvidia anyway. The VortexBuffer problem has also been known to come up in laptops trying to play Steam games, so most likely the video card or CPU or whatever the heck hardware is causing it probably can't handle the games, which further suggests overloading or overheating.
What is that
I get the problem when i try to start the Dark Messiah Demo, i have an 8600gts (dx10 fyi).
You probably have a virus. Last time I got that problem was with hammer, and I had a virus.
[QUOTE=Good Joe]Got this problem on a 8800 320mb[/QUOTE] I have the that same video card and i get that error also. I am beginning to think it might be a problem with Nvidia's drivers.
Yeah, this happens to me too. Although, not as often as GMod crashing completely. Cheers, KnightsMove
[QUOTE=wafles07]I have the that same video card and i get that error also. I am beginning to think it might be a problem with Nvidia's drivers.[/QUOTE] Nay! I've got an ATI Radeon X300 and I got it. I fixed it tho by changing the boot options...although now i have to change me resolution back to 1440x900 every time i load up gmod.

Still having this trouble, even thought i bought new DX10 Gfx card :(
Not meaning to bring an old topic back, but cleaning your garrysmod folder (Renaming your old one) gives you a new one in game, and that worked for me, I suggest trying it. But you do have to reinstall all the addons.
I uninstalled ZPS which worked kinda, but I still can't play multi-player. Anybody got anything for that?
