I'm not sure you are actually using the product rule correctly. Hard to tell since you don't show what you actually did. But you have an x in the denominator. It's still infinity/infinity.

Your limit is completely wrong, the limit is 0. (1-cos(x))/x^1/2 goes to zero. Why do you think it doesn't? (1-cos(x)) is bounded. x^(1/2) isn't.
