Garrys mod crashes upon startup.

Im having this problem with gmod where it just crashes on startup.
Things ive tried-
-reinstall the game
-reinstall steam
-set launch options(-dxlevels)
-go back on windows updates
Yet none of these are working.
does anyone know the problem?
edit:
Also verified and all that stuff.
