Default HL2 and steam

Ok I downloaded hl2 from steam and waited a good 4 hours for it to update, (huh?) then wen i went to play it first it didnt show up and the screen went into a lower res, and then on my next tries it started to load but then froze. Im really pissed off cuz i just payed 45 bucks for the game and it wont work. All the other games ive installed work. and my internet connections running and perfect. My system is:

athlon 64 3500+
1gb ram
nvidia 6800 ultra
windows xp pro sp2

ne1 know wuts up??

There have been alot of problems with steam. Personally I would have just bought a copy from the store which is what i did and no probs at all.

Huh do you load up steam then double click the hl2 icon. Then the green overlay says loading hl2?
