Already a Bananite? Login

My old account in 1.5 and 1.6 was QWales but when I bought HL2 and signed up again to use Source for some reason I created my new account with my login as my email address. This has worked fine up until today but when I tried to connect tonight I got the error: Steam - Warning Steam is having trouble connecting to the steam servers When I tried to use the Retrieve Lost Account option it tells me there is no such account. I then tried my old ID QWales and used the Retrieve Lost Account option again and managed to login to steam. The problem now is that I do not have Source any more, I just get that window with "Register a Product I Already Own" at the bottom. When I try to register it again it tells me that its a Duplicate CD Key, I guess because it is registered to my email address. AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I dont think you can make another account without another serial number. Your number will be locked to your old ID. If it works please let me know how you did it because I tried and couldnt get it to work.

    Its doing my head in. :-( I think there might be a lot of people with this as there is mention of something similar on the Steam support Forum which I cant connect to again at the mo.
