Thats why is good to have a key short cut that will start a terminal.

You can press <Ctrl><Alt>F1 and it will open a new session with a terminal, if you want to go back press <Ctrl><Alt>F7

Also to start gnome:

gnome-session

When i go through the terminal it asks me for the password but nothing types when i need to enter the password, when it asks my username i put it but when i enter my password somehow it just locks.

Does restarting xserver, doesn't fix your problem?

to restart xserver (it will take you to GDM, the log in screen) press <Ctrl><Alt>backspace

When you type your password at the terminal, it is normal for it not to show - this is a security precaution. Just type it as usual, and press "Enter".
