G70 HP Laptop stuck on Initializing serverside?

My friend recently bought Gmod, and he uses a G70 HP Laptop. For some reason whenever he tries starting Gmod the loading screen gets to “initializing serverside”, then the screen goes black, and nothing happens from there. We’ve tried lots of things… Reinstalling, Uninstalling Steam and deleting all it’s files and reinstalling, moving the garrysmod/garrysmod folder into the hl2 folder and launching gmod(suggested in another thread), and tried putting in some addons to see if that would change anything. Anything we haven’t tried yet that you think might fix the problem?

Thanks for the help!

EDIT: SPECS

32 bit
intel core 2 duo processor 2.1 ghz
3gb ram
We think the graphics card is: mobile intel 4 series express chipset family

Bump.

He cannot run GMOD with that.
ORANGE BOX DOES NOT LIKE INTEL CARDS :v:

Why? Is there a way he can make it work?

Get a different processor.
