Portal 2 will not start!
I have had Portal 2 for a while and its my favorite game but now it wont work! It was fine yesterday! I start it up like normal and I get the average message: Preparing to launch Portal 2...Then half a second later I get a message saying: Completing installation 0% THEN another half second later I get a message saying: The steam servers are too busy to handle your request for Portal 2. Error code (2) Underneath that a link to a steampowered support page. What do I do? (Note: Ive tried 20 times and nothing has worked. The situation first happened this morning when Portal 2 had to update. I went to Portal 2 news to see what it was about. There was nothing about it. Then the update stopped. I checked my downloads page to see if it was downloading but everything seemed normal. So I started Portal 2. Note 2: The Completing installation page: 0% lasted longer the first time.) Please help!

I got that problem, I don't know about how you got yours but I just reinstalled my game with the CD I have. It was done in about 5 minutes.
So I guess just try reinstalling?
