    I have a small problem. When I enter the game Garry's Mod, then it starts loading and suddenly, it crashes with the Error "hl2.exe has stopped working". It's like this for a few months and I have no idea how to fix it! Heres my Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family.

    Your graphic card drivers might be outdated. Keeping your driving card updates up-to-date is necessary to get the latest bugfixes and performance updates. You could also try running the latest windows updates.

    Common driver websites
    AMD/ATI
    Nvidia
    Intel

    Other updates
    Windows Update


    As your problem is related to a crash, we require you to upload an crash-dump. Please follow those steps to upload one:

    What is a crashdump?!
    A crashdump is a file generated automatically when your game crashes. It includes important information about what was going on when the game/server crashed. Garry invited a website analyzing the dump and displaying important information which experienced users can use to determine what the problem was caused by.

    What exactly does it include?
    A lot of information. This includes (but isn't limited to):
    - RAM used
    - Path to Garry's Mod
    - Console-Log (doesn't function always, unfortunately)
    - Stack Trace (Doesn't matter what it is)
    - Loaded .dll's
    - Non-default convars
    However: Not everything can be seen clear text by "normal" users. Only garry got access to all functions.

    How to create a crashdump:
    Step 1 - Find the crashdump
    Client
    Browse to your "steam" folder (Usually found at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\) and open the "dumps" folder. Use the windows "detail" view and sort by date/time to pick the latest crashdump.
    Server
    Browse to your servers orangebox folder (the folder with the second srcds.exe in it). Open the "dumps" folder. Use the windows "detail" view and sort by date/time to pick the latest crashdump.


    Step 2 - Upload the crashdump
    Browse to http://dumps.garrysmod.com/. Open the file selector and choose your *.dmp file.
    Now click the huge button on that page called "EAT MY DUMP".



    You don't need to wait for it to process. Just copy the URL in the top of your browser and post it.
    That's it!

    Hello,

    that was a counter-strike source file.
    I guess it doesn't generate a log then.

    Startup problems are always hard to debug... you could try running it with -windowed -noborder.
