    Stuck at "checking battery state..." in ubuntu 12.04. Please help.

    Hey there,
    I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 for quite sometime now. Recently I started having problems with my gnome-settings-daemon i.e whenever I tried to shut down my PC, I used to get a prompt saying gnome-settings-daemon is currently busy. So I uninstalled it out of frustration (which was not a smart thing to do). When I restarted, I could not login and I couldn't see the regular GUI window at the startup. Instead I got the following message:

    *Starting network connection manager wicd
    rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d use the service ( 8 ) utility, e.g. service S50 cups start initctl: Unknown job: S50 cups
    since the scripts you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an upstart job, you may also use the start ( 8 ) utility, e.g. start S50 cups saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned
    *checking battery state...


    I managed to reinstall gnome-settings-daemon using sudo apt-get install gnome-settings-daemon from the terminal at the startup but it didn't help.
    Can you guys please help me out?

    Edit: I have windows XP 32 bit dual boot on my laptop.
