Alright So I just got the game a week or so ago and I have come across a huge problem that is makeing the game hard/impossible to play/enjoy. The game loads and I can access maps, but when I get to the map itself, this happens: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/831/gmodproblem.png/ not only that, but the same streching effect happens with many of the objects, sometimes the objects are invisible, npc’s spawned dont show up, and my weapons dont either. I have already uninstaled it and reinstalled it twice, verified the game cache, defraged it, and it still happens. What is happening, and/or how do I fix it?
Try verifying your game cache or defragging GMod.
Maybe reinstalling gmod doesn’t clean addons and all that stuff. Try this http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Cleaning_GMod
I dont have any mods
What type of graphics are you using? ATI? Nvidia? Intel?

Try adding this to your launch options in garrys mod. If you don’t know how, look at this.
