    404 error come when page not found or page name is not available on server.

    mabs:  you seem to have enough to get internet access

    I agree with ap but was it working and all of a sudden stopped?  are others having this issue or just one workstation?  On the front end server are all services running?

    I think given URL was not available in your site collection.

    For Site Collection checking type http://SiteCollection URL/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx

    If not open above 'View All Site Content' URL then may be your site collection corrupt.

    For more SharePoint Details check below link

    I had this error appear on my SharePoint site when I was creating custom web parts and I put a <name>.DLL_old version of my web part DLL in the VirtualDirectories bin folder. I tried to figure out what was wrong for the longest time because that doesn't seem like an appropriate error for what the issue was.

    Probably not your issue, but I thought I would throw it out there...

    Have you checked in IIS that your application pool and website are running?
    Have you tried an IISReset?
