Can you open the site in SharePoint Designer? Remove all the webparts on the page, and start adding one by one to isolate which one might be causing it. I'm thinking its a reference on the page or maybe the masterpage was edited and not published/checked in by a different user. Careful, that you dont have the page open in multiple tabs/browsers.
