Extreme graphics error

So today I’ve been experiencing some massive errors with the Gmod 10 graphics.

I connected to Pubgamer Serious HL2RP (Veniscript 2) which has worked perfectly up until now. Not exactly sure what to do and this looks like the right place to post.

Symptoms:

  • Uncontrolled contrast
  • Uncontrolled bloom
  • Photo negative
  • No walls on maps
  • Low framerate
  • Letters in chat have black squares around them.

Specs:

  • ATI Radeon HD 4650 1GB (Shader 3.0) AGP ( Recently upgraded from ATI Radeon 9600 / x1050 256mb Shader 2.0 AGP which worked fine )
  • Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.00GHz
  • 2.0 GB RAM
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Build Service Pack 22600)

I’ve tried reinstalling and a complete clean but that didn’t work, so I’m hoping someone here will have an answer.

Check if your graphic card is not overheating?

Happened to me once.

It was caused by overheating.

Strange though, the settings I run on Gmod 10 are all on high, yet I can run Far Cry 2 on high on most settings.

I’ll try putting everything down to low/medium.

Thanks guys, rated useful :slight_smile:
