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.

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

I have a half white screen and the other half is usable..!

You mom will not kill you, the fault was probably not caused by you (you can tell her I told you)..
The fault most likely a faulty video chip on the laptop or a faulty connector between the laptop motherboard and the LCD screen. You can connect the laptop to an external monitor and the power the laptop up, if the image on the monitor is OK then the video chip is OK.
If the laptop is new then it should be under warranty, get it fixed or replaced.

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.
