These gifs don't help, there's no useful information there.

You could do with remoting onto the WFE and changing the settings to get a meaningful error message. Also looking at the log files on the server.

Most common reason Central Admin has errored in my experience is the Application Pools stopping in IIS.

Make sure they're not under credentials that expire. Restart them.

Hi,

I'm not clear on some of the points mentioned above because i'm clued up regarding IIS and ASP.
- WFE?
- Credentials that expire?

I've added another web error when i change the web file within C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\41600.I replaced the  <customErrors mode="On" /> to
 <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" />. Don't know if it will help much though.

Hi,
Jamie is on the right track. SharePoint 2010 is built /targeting the .NET Framework 3.5 - therefore it will not run when the application pool of your central administration is configured to use the .NET Framework 4.0.

Therefore open IIS Manager -> Application Pools -> SharePoint Central Administration v4 -> right clock -> Basic Settings -> Change .NET Framework version from 4.0... to v2.0...
