The thing is gnome power mangager isn't working and everything is seen in crappy graphics, when I log in, the same error message appears and says something is wrong with gnome power management, it also said the xorg server has failed... true this for my Virtual Machine, but the same message appears for my desktop, the VM is more important to me :D

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If you could, could you boot into a recovery console as root and run the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-power-manager

That might work.
