I come across a problem with counter strike game and as some members are cs fanatics maybe yiou will be able to help.
instalment of game goes smooth.
cs condition zero
instalment of steam goes smooth
when i log in with my user name and try to play it onliine my game doesnt respond.i can not get to the window with servers .
when i play it from disk i have no problems at all.so its not driver its not direct x its not firewall because i unistalled it.i even unistalled service pack 2 and still no luck.
when i start steam and try to get to the game it little icon in notification area goes small.
steam gets updated without problem.

I am not an online gamer so this might be total crap, but, in the installation, might you have cleared cookies that contained some sort of password or identifier?
You might have to set up the game connection again?
Just a thought?

right click on the steam icon in the system tray and go to monitor. Sometimes steam will say a game is ready to beplayed when in all reality it is still installing. If the moitor shows it downloading then that is whats happening to you. I had the exact same problem with Condition Zero.

rightclicking on steam in notification area and clicking monitor showed that only 36 of game has been downloaded so i left it on and took 6 hours to download the rest .
now in business
