    Gmod 9 probably worked on the older codebase of HL2, which is now scrapped due to the engine update of HL2. Either get the real Garry's Mod or do a hackjob in which gmod 9 uses Source SDK Base 2006.

    Just downloading the SDK Base 2006 doesn't do anything, you need to tell gmod to use it as codebase too. Open the gameinfo.txt and change the SteamAppId to 215, should do the trick. No guarantees though.
