The laptop is looking for the Apple OS. I suspect the hard drive is corrupt - or has been "told" to boot to OS 9 instead of OS X - and you may not have 9 installed.

If at all possible, reinstall the operating system.

Why macbook not turn off blank screen

If the Apple laptop (or desktop) doesn't shut down properly, try pressing and holding in the power button for 3-5 seconds. This will force a shut down. Good idea to wait a few minutes before attempting a restart again.

When my mac book pro starts up and shows the apple sign that apple sign turns into a restricted sign(circle with a line through it) and then to a blank screen, i need to fix it!

Remove the RAM chips and re-insert. Now try.
Go to System Preferences, Accounts, click on your user account, then click on login items and select all the choices, and then click on the - icon box. Now try this thing out. Nothing still? Shut the thing down and wait 5 seconds. Now remove your battery and make sure your AC adapter is not plugged in. Now press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Now put back in your battery and plug back in the AC adapter and power this beast up. Any luck? No? Power down and wait 5 seconds. Now press the power button and immediately press the apple logo key-option key which is next to the apple logo key-the P key- and the R key at the same time. Wait for 3 bong sounds and then you can release the keys. Still nothing? Your fu.kd bud, because you got an expensive paper weight. You gonna have to repair or replace the logic board.

Boots up but shuts down before opening ?

The software on the hard drive is not loading correctly and is giving the command to shut down. Reinstalling the OS should clear that up.

Sir i dont know how to register new laptop online as i bought my laptop yesterday

this link is probably what you look for:
To register you can also call apple and give them your serial number located in the apple menu about this mac - press twice on Version 10.5.x.
Your mac should be already registered if you were connected to the internet at startup

My apple laptop work for half an hour after that it turn off automatically please sole the problem

How old is the battery? Ususally the batteries last about 3 years, sometimes less. If you are using your laptop connected, try this: While off, remove the battery and connect it. Turn it on and see.
If you still face the same problem, I suggest you install a termometer application. Sudden shut downs might occur from heating the CPU too much. Do you have a dog or cat?? Maybe there is some fur around the vent.... Let me know if it improves

Macbook Pro just shuts down

I haveheard of a few issues regarding this. All seem to ppint to heat. Depending on the surrounding environment are you using your Laptop in. Ideal is on a desktop with at least half a foof surrounding it all round. On solution may be to google "SMC Fan control". Get the latest version 2.1.This little utility is simple and user friendly. Install and set your fans to 25%, see what happens. If you still have a problem go to 50% and so on. At least when you are encoding.

Good Luck.
