So, i got this for christmas (yesterday) and tried to install today only to find out that the cd key has been used! so i use my halflife2 cd key and it gets to preparing the files for install and says something like "steam cannot handle your request right now please try again in a few minutes" and i've been trying all day

Any suggestions?

Restart Steam. If this does not help, go to your main Steam directory (by default, may varry if you have chosen so during the installation): C:\\Program Files\Steam\, locate file called ClientRegistery.blob and remove it. Now start up Steam and wait untill it'll updait itself, as it has to recreate the file. Usualy it contains all the corrupt data that causes Steam network problems in client-server relations.
