Gmod crashing when opening console.

Recently, when I try to open up the console my client freezes for about 20 secs then crashes. Is there a way to fix this?

EDIT: Before anyone asks, this issue started happening around the July 2015 update.

What’s your -dxlevel ? If it’s lower than 90, then set it to be at least that and problem should be gone.

I’m running dxlevel 9.0

I had this issue too.
Try to deinstall Team Fortress 2.

This has nothing to do with tf2.

It might fix it.

Deinstalling TF2 fixed the issue for me, so I thought it could fix it for you too.

Try to verify integrity of both TF2 and Garry’s Mod local files. The client will redownload the files with invalid checksum.

Well my laptop recently restarted and now it doesn’t crash when I open the console.
