    Here's my problem: I can't run Gmod on my Desktop, which is acceptable because of how old it is. But I would think to run it on my laptop, but it doesn't. I start the game fine, it goes to the main menu picture of the 'Gmod guy' and says loading. Okay, it's going fine. However, about 10 seconds later, the game crashes and brings me back to the desktop.
    Same thing happens with my HL2, but that's another thing to be discussed.

    My laptop:
    HP Pavilion Notebook Laptop
    Windows Vista
    Version 2007
    Intel(R) Core 2 Duo CPU
    T6500 2.10GHz
    4.00 GB of RAM

    What's the problem?

    You didn't tell us the most important thing, your video card? If it's some cheap 128mb, then most likely it won't run GMOD. Half-Life 2 and GMOD is the same game, while GMOD is a Modification. If you can't make HL2 to start working, then you won't be able to force start working GMOD.

    You can check info about your graphics card by pressing "Windows Key(Start) + R" and type "dxdiag". Graphics card information under the "Display" category.

    Yeah, we see why you can't run GMod or HL2.

    Right... Well piece of advice for future note, if your graphics card name doesn't start with Nvidia(GeForce) or ATI(Radeon) then it's pretty much safe to assume you have a bit crappy graphics card.

    Intel integrated and expansion graphics cards.,,.. burn them, burn them with fire.
