    I stoped playing source, cs and all that. I just reinstalled Halflife 2 and source, and it is asking me to download the games, asking for my cdkey, and my cdkey on my box is wrong, the cd key is a different kind, mine is longer???

    Well, the cd keys and such should already be assigned to your steam account login information, asuuming you already entered this info when you first signed up with steam.

    strangely for me, the damn thing never asks for the cd key anymore when I install the software. Had probs with getting the source game loaded onto my pc though. Keeps telling me that I have to download it from steam... 58hrs to download, and it won't download coz the server is always too busy.

    well, i found out my old account information and now I have all the games I should. I never knew u couldn't make a new account with the cdkey. I think that's kinda stupid, even though it makes sense lol.

    Just remember your steam information. That's all you need.

    DON'T forget it and don't fubar it by creating new accounts and stuff lol.
