Several weeks ago: My first thread (when I only knew of GMod not working:)
It was only several days ago that Garry’s Mod (the latest version/update) was working normally. However, just recently I would click to start the game and it would show the normal “Preparing to launch Garry’s Mod…” window - only to be almost imminently proceeded by a flicker of what I noticed as the “Garry’s Mod” game window.
I’ve verified the integrity of the game cache, I’ve defragmented the cache files, I’ve reinstalled the game, I’ve deleted all the addons - all with no response whatsoever.
My specs for the Acer Aspire X5810:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8200 2.33GHz (4 CPUs)
Memory: 4094MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Driver: Driver Name: NVIDIA GeForce GT 120
Oh, and I have Vista.
About a week ago:
None of my other games will work. For example, when I start Counter-Strike: Source, the screen goes blank for several seconds and then puts my Steam window full-screen (remaining ‘minimized.’)
There have been two updates since then that haven’t made an effect at all.
Please help. Cheers.
