Annoying SRCDS error

Every time I run my SRCDS (for any game, it being CSS or GMOD) I get an error. When trying to connect to the server in-game, the client crashes immediately. The error is…

CSS:
Failed to load Steam ServiceBOpenService failedServiceStart: failed to start
Edit: Now it says: Failed to load Steam ServiceServiceStart: started as Windows service after installing steam

GMOD:

Edit: Now it says: Failed to load Steam ServiceServiceStart: started as Windows service after installing steam

I’m running windows 2008 server

Here’s my DXDIAG

can you get us a list of services you have running?

How can I do that?

Nvm :wink:

Really helpful of you…

It crashes your computer or the server?
Also, The server is on the same PC or on an dedicated server(or what so ever)

The server is hosted on a different PC, a PC dedicated to hosting the server. My GMod client crahses, not the server nor the computer.

I get the same error from CSS BUT I’m able to join the CSS server without crashing.

Have you tried to completely reinstall the SRCDS?

Also, Do you get the same problem with other server’s or just yours?

Just mine. And yes I have tried to reinstall.

Do you use HLDSUpdateTool or the SRCDS tool from Steam client?

I was helping him with it on steam, The CSS server seems to work fine but he is still having problems with the Garry’s Mod Server.

HLDSUpdateTool

I get the same problem have tried completely deleting everything and re-installed EVERYTHING and updating EVERYTHING. I haven’t had a working gmod server for 4-5 months now and I pretty much give up haha.
