How do I reinstall a game on steam after uninstalling it?

I uninstalled Metro 2033 some time ago and is trying to reinstall it. However when I do, I am asked to activate the product which I already did once and when I write it the serial code I am told that it was already used once. How do I install the game again?

You should prolly ask on steam forums or send them email to tech help or whatnot.

Log into your Steam account first. Also next time make a backup using the built in Steam backup feature. The disc is useless
