My GMod Lags

Hello, I just got windows 7 64 bit yesterday and when i run GMod I get fps lag it’s weird cause i had windows 7 32 bit before and everything worked fine but now i lag alot. Also I can run HL2 fine and all other games but Garrysmod I can’t. Does anyone know what’s wrong and please help me.

Thank you.

What fps are you getting?
PC specs?
Addons installed?
Need more info.

No addons installed.
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 @ 2.66 GHz, 2.67 GHz
RAM: 4,00 GB
System type: 64 - bit Operating System
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 275 896 MB

and a picture of what?

I get 5 fps.
And I even lag while I’m not in a server… In the main menu.

Perhaps your cpu is having a hard time on 64 bit. Why not go back to 32 bit?

Why should I go back to 32 bit it’s not 64 bits fault. 64 bit is alot better.
It’s my Garrysmod. No other game lags. I’m trying one thing I’ll post if it works and I’ll also post the fix.


No I tried renaming the folder it didn’t work ! :frowning:


I tried running everything in lowest and it lagged :confused:

Tried re-installing gmod completely?

Yeah. Right click gmod and delete content. Also tried deleting GMod folder. Can someone get Garry to see if he can look at this problem?

By the way heres more info about specs.

if you are going to reinstall, delete the garry’smod content.gcf
in steam/steamapps/

I know his problem. He has windows.

I tried re-installing all my drivers and i got all the new ones for 64 bit windows 7 and this still isn’t working :C

Well I’m certainly not gonna run it from Linux and Apple doesn’t support .exe’s and if you’re gonna play games on Apple you need to get that windows program to run games so.

I think I might just go switch my 64 bit for a 32 bit, if there is no solution.

I bought 32 bit.
