I've installed steam so many times on so many diff setups without once having an issue, I feel that this is more of a hardware/software problem then a STEAM problem.

what does steam say/do? Does it load up in game almost all the way and then drop you? A PC restart or restarting steam a few times usually does the trick... Or you can just wait...

Counter Strike seems to play fine thru the servers, but when I connect thru "Steam" I/we get a dark shadowed screen insted of the screen to purchase weapons, then its locked up. I've tried Steam from the CD set, Counter-Strike™ 1 Anthology & from the "steam" web site. both acted the same.
