Default The steam servers are currently too busy to handle your request

I keep getting this error when trying to launch the game, but I can launch other games. So I uninstalled cause it also said my game was heavily fragmented and steam said it's too heavily fragmented to fix it. So I try to reinstall it and that same error in the topic title still pops up.

I had a friend launch their copy of the game and it works just fine for them, they just hosted a public game.

Is there a way to fix this error? Is it only happening in my area? If it helps, I am in Chicago. I am running the GOTY version of this game. I am on 32-bit win7.

it might be temporary, but what you could give a go; is right click borderlands in your steam library, properties -> updates -> uncheck the cloud syncing option and try to launch
