Steam wont go online

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Title practically says it all. was trying to search around but im hopeless!

Steam just constantly stays offline even when switching to online, i dont even remeber switching it to offline.

Is there a config file or something i can delete to technically reset it or whatever needs to be done.

Ya find Clientregistry.blob under Steam Directory, rename it to clientregistryold.blob, and run Steam.

Shutdown Steam and delete clientregistry.blob (from the steam folder) and restart Steam.

Close Steam. Go to C:\Program Files\Steam and rename clientregitry.blob to something else. Restart Steam.

Edit: lol. What those 2 guys said above me.

Trying it now. was going to respond when it was done.. but meh.. just incase loads of people respond saying the same thing. ill edit this in a sec

edit:
attachment.php?attachmentid=236935&stc=1&d=1320148510

okay... now this is getting stupid... >.<<br />
It seems to be struggling badly to connect to the steam servers. i changed a localconfig.vdf to localconfig.vdf.old then it reported back saying i have never connected to steam on this comp... expected a steam guard to come up... nada... just failed with an error saying "Steam is having trouble connecting to the steam servers"

going to run around the router and see if anything has mysteriously reset (im on DMZ so that shouldnt be a problem unless someones been messing around)

Try swapping to your next closest server in your settings, sometimes they take 1 or two offline for maintenance. smile.gif

Sometimes Steam goes down for awhile in an area. Give it some time.
