Half Life2 -problems with Steam

I know it is slightly off-topic but there always seems to be someone on here who can help with most things. Bought Half Life2, installed it but everytime I try to play it states it cannot connect to Steam. Anyone else had this problem?
Haven't been asked to validate CD key either which it says on instructions you will be asked to do.
Have been on Steam website but there's nothing on there which i can find which explains what is wrong.

But I thought most of the troubles had been sorted by now. although I know that some anti-virus programes can cause problems, Norton in particular.

Try uninstalling and then clear everything from your system tray except firewall and antivirus then re-install, this has been known to work before.

Do you get the brown steam dial up box when the pc starts up. You may only need the cd code if you want to use the multiplayer game. When I play I use the quit option in the steam box, I then connect to the internet using my bt dial up but do not open ie. I then select steam from the half life programs. then select half life 2.
