k. I reformated my computer. do I have to re-install the HL cd? or just download steam and enable the games there? if so. do they remember my e-mail address and know what games I own? or do I have to re-enter my cd key?
ok I guess it remembers the cd key cause all I did was type my account in and it lets me install. but when CS is done installing. onlything that comes up is counter-strike source in the servers window. wtf. and when I try to connect to a server. nothing happens. it just sits there trying to connect. then retries. then nothing.
ahh that is exactly what happened. but now when I try to play it. it takes a long time "precaching files". alot longer than it used to. is this cause I just downloaded it off steam and didnt install through the cd? or what? also. the screens out of game. options, servers, connecting screen is a little wavy. it looks like my monitor is getting ready to die. but it doesnt do it anywhere else. just some games. is this my graphic card dying? is there any program out there that lets you test your graphic card to see if its dying or not?
for some reason. now. it works fine. like it did before. the screen is still waving in any game I play though heh. only at the menus though. oh well. if my card dies, it dies. it's only a $90 card hah.
