im assuming you installed Steam, right?

i think your problem is a little vague... you mean you click the game icons and nothing happens?
are you sure both games are completely updated and installed?

check your steam bandwidth monitor to see if youre updating the games. see this picture to see how to check the bandwidth monitor.

if the games are updating, wait until theyre done.

if nothings there, then read this.
that verifies the steam cache files and checks their integrity.

Are you lying? Cause we've done this before when someone tried to lie to us lol

Butttt, you cannot retrieve your cd key, that's why when installing steam says "Safely store your information in a place" or something. I printed like 10 copies of it.

@ shorty...for your problem, did you do the verify cache thing that In3rt!a said?

i think they both have something to hide, if your friend is having same problem, you must be sharing keys?

why dont you gentlemen email steam, their support turnaround is great, adn they can help you immensly.

You need to email steam for support. We cannot help you with this issue as doing so could promote illegal activities.

Plus... the rest of us remember our passwords or learn to write down a list on paper :p

ok, press CTRL + ALT + DELETE and then check processes, if the HL2.exe shows up there for a few secounds then atleast it aint steam thats having problems, that would mean that HL2 engine crashes at start up, go through the steam support page and see if anything there would help you, such as Launch options ( for example ) -dxlevel 81 (lowers the dx level so older graphic cards can run it)
