Steam GOTY Trouble

With the recent Steam sale, I picked up the Borderlands GOTY Edition. I'm having trouble submitting the code for The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned.  
When I fast travel to Jakobs' Cove, the loading screen goes never ends, as I'm supposed to Alt-Tab out of the game, where there's a window to type in the code. When the window pops up, I can't bring anything else up on screen. A browser, the desktop, anything. I typed in the code for Dr. Ned, and the window said it was incorrect.  
Anyone else having this issue?

Copy (to your clipboard) the cdkey from the steam overlay before you load into Dr Ned. When it brings up the window, then just paste it. I had the exact same issue you had and this worked for me. Hope it helps!

edit: you'll want to do the same for Underdome Riot and I think for the Armory as well. For some reason, you need to enter the cdkey for Robot Revolution.

run the game in a window by pressing ALT+ENTER. Then you'll see the code entry window.

Thanks, both of you. It's working now.  
Which Key do I use for the Armory and RR, the Dr. Ned one?

@DonutFever: Oops sorry, I meant to say for some reason, you don't need to enter the key for Robot Revolution. Does Steam give you a key for the Armory too? If not then you don't need to enter a key for that either.

There are only keys for Dr. Ned and Moxxi, I think. Everything else will work out of the install.

@PrimeSynergy: Nope, just Dr. Ned and Mad Moxxi. Thanks!
