Hey guys, I bought GMOD 2 days ago and I tried starting it up and it doesn’t work. all it does is just says that I’m in game but I am still in my desktop, or it goes in but it freezes and the FPS remains at 0. Can someone help me please, that really would be appreciated. Thank you.

What are your specs?

I’m Running Windows 7

My Processor is Inter® Core™ Quad

My system type is a 64 bit

I have 4 gigabytes on my PC

Do you have DEP exceptions for Garry’s Mod?


What about your Graphics Card?

I believe it is a GeForce GTS 250

I don’t know what you mean by that, but I do own games that complete the qualification for Garry’s Mod. I own Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, and Portal. I also own Half Life 2 Deathmatch and Half Life 2 Lost Coast but those do not fulfill the qualification.

Did you receive any pop-ups from steam while starting gmod? I recently found out that my graphics card is unsupported and that is also an nvidia card. Havent had any problems myself, but you never know. Updating your graphics drivers is always a good idea.

No, I never receive any pop-ups whatsoever. It just I turn the game on and I just stay on the Desktop, and go nowhere, or I go in game, but it goes nowhere, and the FPS remains at 0.

Try running with -windowed and -dxlevel 80
