So my friend has a decent computer (and, no Facepunch account), so he wanted me to ask this question for him about GMod, since I'm entirely stumped. My computer is barely better than his, I run GMod perfectly, and his is barely playable.
The problem is simply when he plays GMod, his entire computer crashes, and he has to reboot. The crashing usually takes about 5-15 minutes (occasionally longer) to actually crash when he first starts playing, Singleplayer OR Multiplayer.
His system specs are:
nVidia 9600GT Graphics Card
Windows XP Home SP3
He only has Wiremod (downloaded) and PHX3 (also downloaded), so I'm really confused as to what is causing the crashing.
The crashing also occurs in other games like HL2DM (even Runescape, for those of you who know what it is, and I'm amused by the fact he plays it). So I'm wondering if any of you have ANY idea what's actually going on here. It's no fun since I can't play with my friend. :(
