If you are not getting the details of the error try to enable the Custom errors so that it will display the stack trace..

Here are the steps:

1) Navigate to the web application’s web.config file

2) Find the SafeMode setting:

<SafeMode MaxControls="200" CallStack="true" DirectFileDependencies="10" TotalFileDependencies="50" AllowPageLevelTrace="true">

3) Find the CustomErrors setting:

<customErrors mode="On" />

and set mode=”Off”:

<customErrors mode="Off" />

These type errors are coming because content database is having these objects and those are orphan in the site collection. thus you can repair the content database to delete these orphan objects in the particular site collection.
