Gmod keeps crashing.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I can play garrys mod for about a hour and then it crashes to desktop saying "hl2.exe has stopped working windows is looking for a solution" This is the only game that crashes. I can play CSS for awhile w/o any issues.

I almost thought it was a unstable OC, so I went back to stock clocks and the same thing happens.

Gets pretty annoying because once I start getting alot of cash or something it crashes.

Any ideas?

I had the same issue as you. I just uninstalled it then went into the directory and deleted all the Gmod folders that were left after the uninstall and than a fresh clean install.

Okay I will give this a try thanks.

Do you think it was some addons that can cause this issue?

Possibly. After installing each addon run the game for a few minutes, and see if you start crashing again. That way you can find the problematic addon.

My computer has an OK spec. I'm running the AMD Phenom II X4 955, 4 GB of 1600 MHz ram, power colour hd 5770 and windows 7 ultimate. Every time I try to connect to a server it hits the 'retrieving server info' and then crashes. I'm not having any overheating problems and running in compatibility mode doesn't help. I have automatic updates on both steam and OS and I let them run. I'm stumped. any suggestions??
thanks Sam

oh and I've forgotten to mention I have AVG as my virus scanner and I have tried a fresh install of the operating system to try and get it to work.
