Everything in its right spot, your not missing any files like art files or .dat?

Close steam and open it back up and try again.

The same exact thing happens to me. When i try to do singleplayer or multiplayer, i choose a place then it loads and when it's almost done it crashes and says their is a problem with hl2

do you guys own any other source engine game? Garry's Mod requires an orange box game, HL2, CSS or DODS

I don't think it does, I think it's stand alone is it not? I know gmod9 isn't but 10/11 are... I think anyway.

I know for a fact garrysmod 10 and 11 are NOT standalone. They come with plenty of content but they need a verified engine to run (counter strike source, dod:source, half life 2, etc.)

you still need a source engine game, but steam wont let you buy garrys mod without one so they should have a source game already

use this command in the console: vgui_allowhtml 0 it removes the G in the loading screen and helps it load without crashing.
