hmm - are you saying when you try to register your cdkey it says steam is too busy to authenticate your request?

If so - try again in a couple of hours - might be a temporary problem.

did you read the sticky?

"If you are trying to register a cd-key that has 25 digits (DoD, CZ, or ATI Bundle key), and getting a "The Steam servers are too busy... sorry for the inconvenience" message, please enter the key including the original dashes, like this:

abcde-12345-fghij-67890-klmno

hmm.

instead of entering your key like this: abc123456789

enter it like this (your cdkey sticker should have dashes (-) in it)

abc-123-456-789

put it exactly like that then, include the dashes

basically like that 1234-56789-1234 and not like 1234567891234

i did some more searching on the steam forums for you.

also - you don't need to reinstall for a cdkey problem :)

Ok here goes.

"This happend to me when trying to register illegal keygenerated CD keys into steam"
Is your cdkey legit?

"If the Steam Network is down or too busy you may not be able to register a CDKey to your Account at this time!

You can always look at the Steam Status Page and see if there is something is going on. If the last update for that page is more then 20 or 30 minutes behind, that is a good indicator of a problem.

Please also check to see if there are other players having the same problem on the Steampowered Forums.

If the Network is down, you will just need to be patient and wait until the problem gets cleared.

Usual Solution for this Problem:
You need to enter your CDKey exactly the way it's printed, including the dashes or it won't work."


"Question
I'm having troubles registering my CDkey in Steam.

Answer
When you register your CD key in Steam, it's important that you enter it exactly as it's printed on your package.

If your key contains 25 digits (such as one for "Day of Defeat," "Condition Zero," or from the ATI bundle), you should enter it with the original dashes, as follows:

xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

The same goes for 13-digit keys, which should be entered as follows:

xxxx-xxxxx-xxxx

If, however, you have a 20-digit CD key (such as one for Opposing Force), you cannot use it with Steam."


That about covers it.
