GMod launch issues

Hello, I have gotten new labtop, and I have installed css and gmod. When I launch gmod I get the preparing to launch like normal then it just goes away. Nothing happens or comes up :frowning: Off of steam I have ran the cputest and my processer meets the requirements. My labtop came with XP but I instaleld vista on it.

I hate to do this but… Bump.

I now have Windows 7 and I still get this issue. I have searched and searched and got nothing.

I tried…
-autoconfig
-fullscreen
-window
-dxlevel ~

Anything else?

Try putting one of these combinations into launch options:


-window -dxlevel 90


-fullscreen

Hey im having this exact problem. Iv never had this problem before. I just reinstalled Garrys mod and I cant get it started. I tried doing what was suggested up above didnt work. What should I do?

And the Fullscreen thing is not working

GMod is trying to launch at a resolution that is too low, most likely.

Click on Start, then Run…, type in “regedit” (without quotes), and hit OK. Registry Editor should open.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Source\garrysmod\Settings.

You should see what appear to be console commands the right. Find ScreenHeight and ScreenWidth and set them to your monitor’s native resolution.

I fixed it by deleting gmod directory
