You need to give us WAY more information.

First, go up to the sticky I have in the top of this section called Brief How-To, and check the basics of whether you own the right games and have them installed before even playing Gmod.

Then, describe your issue - what exactly happens? Is this on an account that has those other games, or is it a new account? Is your computer different than it was the first time you played it? (Any hardware or software changes will affect its performance.) Does the game start and crash? Or just hang, get soundloops, etc - or does an error message appear (hl2.exe has stopped working, pipe error)?

Then, please go to the top of your Steam library page, click the HELP tab at the very top. Click System Information, and let Steam analyze your computer (and I strongly suggest allowing Steam to also get your info on their database so they know what people are running, to better serve us). You can copy and paste that info here so we can see whether you computer is the problem or if there's a software conflict.

Basic things:

Make sure you have a firewall or virus scanner that ALLOWS STEAM to run through them. Sometimes they start scanning and say "hey, what's this trying to make changes to the computer?!" and shut the program off. That's usually an "i can play about 20 minutes and it stops" issue since they often sweep around once every 20 or 30 minutes.

Make sure your video card is a) up to running the game, and b) running updated drivers. Certain cards may need to be rolled back, or have parts of their control center shut down so things run better without the interference.

Make sure your computer is running COOL and SMOOTH - clean it, make sure that the fans are working and that your heat sink is free of dust. Overheats often cause complete shutdowns, rather than failure to start a program.


Anyway I hope that this helps, please get back if you need specific help.

Be aware right now there's a new update that seems to have broken gmod for some people. It might just be that you happened to try logging in when the update has broken the game!
