Append the following to your site default.aspx
This will display a list of the web parts on your page, without actually
needing to render them. You will see that your page has a very large
number of "closed" web parts (MSNBC Weather, MSNBC News, FeedReader,
etc.). I would recommend deleting the web parts that you do not intend
to re-open. If the page still will not load, close the remaining web
parts one at a time until your page will load again, then delete and
rebuild the offending web part.
An alternative approach is to open your site using "SharePoint
Designer", and delete unused web parts from there. However, I find the
"Web Part Page Maintenance" feature a lot more convenient, whenever I
can remember the URL.
