So I was playing half life, and I got to that part in the corridor where there is electricity zapping the ground from the celling. Even if I'm far away it will still kill me, so how do I get past it? Can I stop it somehow?

Which chapter is this? (It will tell you on the list of save games.) – SevenSidedDie Jul 20 '13 at 17:22

Position yourself towards the corridor with the hanging cables that are electrified. Behind you is a locked room with some scientists which you want to enter.

Turn towards the electricity. On the bottom of the right wall is a ventilation duct. Enter the duct and go to the right. You will enter the locked room. Watch out for the hidden barnacles. On the opposite side of the room to the right is a door, inside is a switch that will disable the power for that part of the map.
