More than a Handful of Problems with Garry's Mod

Hi, I don’t even know where to begin… But here goes

  1. When ever I start up garry’s mod it goes to a black screen.
  2. When ever I try joining a server garry’s mod will crash giving me this error:

hl2.exe - Application Error
The instruction at “0x00000000” referenced memory at “0x00000000”. The memory could not be “read”.

or

can’t load lump # allocation of bytes failed

  1. When ever I try joining a server It’ll be at," Sending Client… " And it’ll send me right back to the menu to choose a server
  2. When ever I try to join a server It’ll go to a black screen
