Cannot open the disk

I have a VM of Windows 2003 in ESX 3i host. I tried to erase all the Snapshot of the VM and when the task arrive to the 95% was stopped for quite some time. When the task finished, I look that the VM was power-off, when I try to power on i receive the following error:
"Cannot open the disk"
'vmfs/volumes/.../win2003/win2003-0000001.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.
Reason: The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created"
Any idea about this problems???
There is a way to recover this VM???
Best Regard
