I am getting an error when i click new webpart in webpart gallery. I want to deploy my custom webpart to sharepoint webpart gallery. I try to look in sharepoint log. Sadly, there is no further info in sharepoint log. They dont even throw correlation number error.

what error are you getting? Did you check the ULS logs? Do you have a custom master page? Did you try to add the web part with the default master page set for the site? – Deepu Nair Feb 16 '12 at 8:47
Only "file not found" error.. I try to upload image in this question for further clarity but my rep not allow it. – Sam Feb 16 '12 at 9:00
Are you talking about the web part gallery or add new webpart menu? – SPArchaeologist Feb 16 '12 at 9:10
when I click new webpart in webpart gallery. In NewDwp.aspx. The problem has solved now. After I googling, i know that the culprit is "return of smartpart" component. Many thanks all... – Sam Feb 16 '12 at 14:50

Are you using smart-part in your SharePoint site? If so, maybe you should install AJAX 1.0 in your web front-end server to solve that error. This is a common error when you dealing with smart-part. If not, just ignore my answer.
