Black Textures In Gmod 11

Okay, so I've got an old MacBook 1st gen running Boot Camp with a GMA 950 graphics card with a 2GHz Core Duo and 2GB RAM, and I installed Gmod 11 and it's working fine until I want to use certain items, (Specific Vehicles, .357 Magnum,) but when I create them there's sort of a weird black shadow texture on the props. Any idea of what I can do?

(P.S. please don't just be like Oh your computer sucks get a newer one, etc, because that really doesn't help me at all)

But...What if the reason actually is, that your macbook is too weak to handle gmod?

GMA 950 goes beyond the minimum gpu-requirement.
(for example mimimum pixel shader requirement is 2, which that gpu doesnt have.)

In other words: You cant play gmod properly (barely at all) on that maccie, sorry.

Well, thanks anyway, my Mac is getting kinda slow, I guess it is time for an upgrade.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, Lol but I've fixed my problem by typing "-dxlevel 81" in the "Set Launch Options" this might help some people who have as bad graphics cards as me.
