I got HL 2, registered, gave them my password etc, put in the cd key
numbers and played the game. Turned off machine. Then came back a few
hours later, went online and the steam window reads “operation cannot
be completed when steam in offline mode.” So how do I make it go
online? I have looked on all the steam window boxes, pressed this icon
and that and I can’t work it out.
If anyone can help I will really appreciate it. I have the game
installed, it worked earlier, I just can’t find an icon which reads
‘steam online’. Sorry if the answer is staring me in the face, but I
can’t access steam online even though my broadband is live.
Thanks if you can help.

Seems you lost your internet connection while trying to play the second
HL always checks your game is not a pir8 one through internet.
Try lauch again when you are sure you are connected.

Yes, thanks for your help I turned off my pc, put it back on, went
back online and then Steam worked.:)
Since then I seem to be able to play it both online and offline.
