My steam game won't download?

So I bought Far Cry 2, and downloaded it. It was about 90% done when a storm took the internet out. So now I'm back online and everytime I click on install it says "scanning for steam updates..." and never actually starts installing or downloading! help!

    Exit steam, go to steam installation folder, find a file named ClientRegistry.blob, delete it, reboot your computer, login to steam and try to download. Usually works. If not, go to steam settings and change download server to another nearby country/state, restart steam and try again. If that does not work either, then, exit steam again, move the steamapps folder to your desktop, then uninstall steam, install it again, exit steam, move the steamapps folder back, start steam, and try to download. Hope that helps!
