Hey guys! My first post, so glad to be here!
Anyways… I seem to be having a problem. When I first installed Gmod, the first thing I noticed was some texture issues, and spawning a ragdoll basically shots Gmod in the head. Here is a picture of the worst of it:

This only happens if I set the graphic enhancements (anti-aliasing and filtering modes) too high. If those options are lowered, just a few textures here and there are black, such as the ground or a few walls. Gmod SHOULD run great, because I have a Sony VAIO VPCCW21FX with 4 gigs of ram, intel i3, and a 310M graphics card (2 gigs of dedicated memory) and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I tried reinstalling Gmod, but that did nothing. But here is where it gets weird. After I start Gmod, and then quit, any other game that I play AFTER Gmod has the SAME glitchy textures until I restart the computer. Once I restart, the other game, Oblivion works like a charm again, but, obviously, Gmod still doesn’t. And before you start blaming Source, let me tell you the last time I checked, Oblivion doesn’t run Source Engine. If anyone can help me with this strange problem, PLEASE do so.
