    can someone please help me with this. i bought half-life2 when it 1st came out, been playing counterstrike. had to format and reinstall windows, and when i tried to reinstall half-life and enter my cd key (the one that came with the game) it said that my key was invalid cuz it was a duplicate key. is there anyway i can play or reset my cd key without sending $10.00 to washington from british columbia with the key i have and proof of purchase?

    Right do this:

    Uninstall Half Life 2 and Steam.
    Install Steam, when asked enter your account details that you entered when you first brought the game.
    Then Steam will load and show Half Life 2 in my games menu.
    Then install Half Life 2.
    Play!

    And when you pirate the games, they treat you like royalty! Bit of a juxtaposition!
