Hi vivekthangaswamy thanks for this post, I have been getting a number of errors since migrating to a new environment, which I was able to resolve once it was more obvious what the underlying issue was. It ended up being a combination of a number of missing Web Part assembles which I first suspected. In my case, displaying errors was all that was required as the message displayed contained the specific details of the missing assemblies.

I also found the following article which explains how to enable errors, call stack trace, debugging and the ASP.NET tracing feature which may also help when troubleshooting SharePoint errors.
