I’ve recently installed the Windows 8.1 update for my Compaq laptop, and for some reason when I turned on Garry’s Mod, I’ve found a bit of a problem. When the main menu loads up, the right-hand side of the screen flickers with white lines for a bit and once the whole main menu loads up, they stop and dissappear. Then, when I go load the game, I see the loading screen loading the game alright, then I hear the sounds that I hear whenever I load a map but the screen is still stuck on the loading screen. I am able to press a button and hear sounds from it, but the screen is stuck on the loading screen, showing that it’s loaded 95%, but I can’t see what I’m doing at all in the GMOD world.
I tried exiting out to the Desktop and then clicking on the game to relaunch it, but then it turns into a black screen instead of the loading screen. I am still able to press buttons and hear sounds from them and from the world around me, but I am unable to see anything going on at all. It worked fine before right up to the point when I’ve installed the update, and I did try to reinstall it from scratch but absolutely no difference has been made at all.
If anyone has any cures or suggestions for me to fix the problem, I would be very grateful for your assistance.
