oh and also heres a vid of me showing th pics a took cause idk how to get them on here… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYd30kj-178 didnt show fire though

That’s your problem. I’m surprised Gmod even ran on your computer…

Try this, go to your Steam Games list, right click Garrys mod, click Properties, then click Set Launch options, then type this:

-dxlevel 80

Then click OK. Try running gmod then

whoa that even helped me thnx dude!

well it didnt work what was it supposed to do? cause unless i have to type the - in it, it didntwork

You do have to type the - in it

even if it goes down to it,
is there a -dxlevel 7

yeah okay well that didnt change anything even when i typed the - nothing >:(

I don’t think Source 2007 Supports it.

Well, I think your shit out of luck. Get a better computer if you want to play Garry’s Mod properly.

AT LEAST TELL ME WHY THE FCK ITS BROWN UNDERWATER! MY OTHER LAPTOP HS THAT PROBLEM TOO AND ITS ANNOYING AS FUCK AAGGHH!! plus i spent a lot of money on tis comp… FUCK

It’s because your computer sucks and is way too old. Plain and simple.

maybe the water is shit.

also your specs suck maybe you should buy a first hand computer

Try downloading this program http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1665o/GPU-Z.0.3.6.exe and run it. And tell me what it says next to Driver Version
Here’s a screenshot:
