  1. So when I play gmod during the game my screen freezes then goes black I have to restart gmod to get it back to normal, then the cycle repeats, Im running gmod on -dx 81 or whatever that command was and Im not exactly sure what to do I have tried to do some searching but that hasn't helped much, this issue began today I'm unable to play gmod at all with that happening.

    any solutions?

    Mine does that too, but instead of a black screen, it shows my desktop. I can still hear all audio from Gmod, and people say I still move while I hold W. Just something you have to live with, I guess.

  3. The problem is fine, I guess its just a problem with steam that was later fixed, because before the blackscreens I faced other problems that is most likely steam related and that probably led onto the black screen issue.
