                I'm new and i'm in the Monsatery, in the Underground in Pragues old town (in that same level) and i've gotten to a place where my partner tells me i must find a key to open the door and i've searched everywhere and nothing. Theres also 2 Gates locked down and i cant find the switches to open them but im guessing its behind either in mercurios locked door or the one im talking to you guys about. PLease help!!!!

 It's been awhile, but I believe the key will be a fingerbone on a big painting, it should stand out a little bit for you to see and click on it.  Christof will say something about a key in the shape of a fingerbone when you get it.  It won't show up in your inventory, but you should be able to unlock the door to get in Cappadocius' quarters.

 Ah, just saw edit, guess you got key and Lamia's skull, ignore my previous post.  If you found the femur, have christof use it as his weapon and wilhem feral claws and mercurio should fall -- it may get dicey, but the femur and feral claws will do aggravated damage, which helps.

 A long time ago I read a whole tutorial on killing Mercurio.  A good idea is to cast celerity or potence before beginning the conversation sequence.  Then as soon as the fight starts, hit the Pause/Break button on your keyboard.  that will pause the game so you can assign each of your two characters an action.  when you unpause, they will perform their assigned actions at the same time.  you can continue to micromanage the combat in this manner as much as you like, but I generally switch to realtime combat once I get past the first couple seconds.  Also, keep one guy on each side of Mercurio.  that way when he uses Plague Wind, only one of your characters will be hurt instead of both of them.

                hey guys thanks a bunch, i researched the site and found a post on how to kill mercurio, i gave Christof the big femur bone and we killed him in about 8 seconds, fairly easy.

     Something you may or may not have noticed so far...
     Unlike Diablo 2, where you must identify magical items before being able to use their special features, in vtmr you can pick up any unidentified item and use it to its full capacity.

                    What if you get the finger bone to get into Garinol's Door, but he neither says anything and the door wont open. I have the lastest version, so I don't think that's it.

     Sometimes the game's scripting engine doesn't have all its ducks in a row and will then prevent certain scripted events from taking place.  this sometimes prevents doors from opening, NPCs from speaking, even map zone click-exits will stop working.  this is an uncommon problem, and since it's somewhat rare, i don't know what causes it or how to fix it with any certainty.  the only thing i can really reccomend is that you uninstall the game, then reinstall + patch.
