Getting stuck on sending client info

Alright, so about 1/3 of the servers I attempt to join, I get to the “Sending client info…” step, where I will sit until it times out. On another 1/3, I get this weird teleport-y lag and can’t chat or use any UI, and on another 1/3 I can join just fine. This doesn’t seem to be a problem with my connection as I can run GMod fine on other computers connected to the same network. I’m running windows 10, but before that I had windows 8.1 and the problem persisted.

Been having the same issue loading MethRP and Grand Theft Auto RP servers, one for each gamemode. Except what happens for me is I freeze on the very last step, my mouse doesn’t even move, Ctrl + Alt + Del doesn’t work, which sometimes causes my entire PC to crash, not only the game, and Alt + Tab of course is broken too. I have no clue why this happens personally. I was just about to make a thread about this myself, so tell me if you get a solution. I’ve tried deleting all addons and unsubscribing to them through the workshop (and I discovered I had 40 gigs of addons xD) and that didn’t work, it just redownloaded them. And I deleted all Gmod local content through steam, also did nothing to help. So I think this is Facepunch’s issue, hopefully it’ll be fixed soon. I’ve seen several other threads about this.

Might want to add your specs, here are mine, “Standard” specs from, not too good:
Processor Intel® Pentium® CPU 2030M @ 2.50GHz
Manufacturer Intel
Speed 2.5 GHz
Number of Cores 2
Video Card Intel® HD Graphics
Manufacturer Intel
Chipset Intel® HD Graphics
Dedicated Memory 32 MB
Total Memory 1.8 GB

Operating System Microsoft Windows 8.1 (build 9600), 64-bit

Also, PS: My laptop is about 2 and a half years old but still runs really well for all other games, so it’s probably not my hardware.
