Problems with Xorg and Mouse and Keyboard issues in Xfce4

I am emulating Archlinux through VirtualBox on Ubuntu. I have just finished installing Xfce4, and it turns out that the mouse and the keyboard refuses to work inside the emulation. Being a complete newbie and having absolutely no idea on where the source of the problem is, I decided to follow the instructions on the Archlinux Wiki to configure my Xorg (where I got the idea to do that, no one will ever know...). It appears Xorg refuses to start when

# startx

is run, and outputs:

(EE) Failed to load module "vboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "fbdev" (module does not exist, 0)

waiting for X server to shut down error setting MTRR (base = 0xe0000000, size 0x04000000, type = 1) Inappropriate ioctl for device (25)

I have no idea what this means, and whether it has anything to do at all with my mouse and keyboard problems in Xfce4.
As well, I just recently installed Xorg 1.7.6, which may mean that it is not properly configured.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe virtualbox uses an emulated video card. Let me see what I can find...

I'v been searching for a while on Xorg configuration on the VBox, but to no avail...
Thanks anyway.
