Unhappy Half Life 2 CD key problem!

I DO NOT get this. I actually BOUGHT the game. My VERY FIRST game for the computer. And it doesn't seem to work! I don't get it. I entered the CD key , and it says it is invalid. OMG! >_<

so call them up. If you really did buy it, why not just call them?

Double check all the letters numbers, as on mine a Q looks like a O as the little tail thing looks like it belongs to the next letter.

I think you need to be connected when creating a steam account to the internet.

Yeah make sure your connected to the internet
Make sure you hit the right button
Make sure you type in everything right

Try it on a different PC to activate steam.


And yes, he has a copy of the game from the Canadian AMD + Mobo = FREE HL2 deal.

Definetly make sure you type it in right. I misread mine for at least 5 minutes. I read and I and J as a U :\ maybe I need glasses, but they were pretty close together.

Alot of people when they type in the CD key they mistakenly type in extra digits which are printed at the end neside the CD key but are actually not part of it. I know because I was one of those idiots.
