So Uh, Any Solution To This Whole "Not Loading" Thing?

So Garry’s Mod at least opens for me. Yes, opens. Nothing else. I’ll post the exact screen I’m sure many of us have already seen:

It doesn’t load. At all. It hangs there forever, never moving. I’ve tried fullscreen, I’ve tried disabling Steam In-Game (which is usually disabled by default for me). Windows is updated, drivers are updated, computer meets system requirements, no crash logs are being created.

System Specs:

AMD Athlon II x2 @ 3.0 GHz x64
320GB HDD (207GB Free)
ATI Radeon HD 5450
LCD Monitor @ 1920x1080 DVI

I’m guessing it’s just an issue with GMod itself.

Delete your second garrysmod folder. I’ve had this issue a few times and this usually seems to fix it. If that doesn’t work, go to steam, library, right click garry’s mod and go to properties, local files and hit verify game cache.
