Garry's Mod BSOD on my Lenovo R61 laptop

Hi i just download gmod from the steam store and put the game in, but i open the game and it loads for 30s and it gives me a bsod what do i do

i have update my video card that did not help

what do i do

It’s your laptop. It doesn’t have memory enough.

This is true with many laptops, unless the laptop title has the word gaming in it. I would never trust non-gaming laptops with my games unless I know that there is enough ram a good processor and a good video card. By the way if you still won’t give up trying to use your laptop then list your specs on here and we can tell you if any games will work.

but i can play portal on my laptop and Half Life 2 DM so whay i can not paly GMod

Its has intergrated intel graphics, won’t help at ALL, that’s probably a cause, and gmod uses a new version of the engine ot hl2:dm

Yes like Dagoth said, HL2 DM uses an older engine, not the new Orange Box one. Also, intergrated graphics are always problematic. I suggest you get a desktop or a good gaming laptop.

will it work on a macbook pro in vmware?
