Again, there is not enough information to begin to help you. What you're doing here is like telling a car mechanic "my car does not go forwards" without bothering to check any of the warning lights, looking under the bonnet, or even checking for a horde of rampaging penguins blocking the wheels. He doesn't stand a chance of helping you move the car until you look for the problem.
The dashboard error is a little more information, but
1) You can get this error if your base url is incorrect
2) You can get this error if your server is firewalled off from itself
3) Read your log
Just in case this helps someone, I was having the same issue with just certain gadgets on my dashboard, and looks like what Sameera said, probably the indexes were corrupt. Unfortunately I couldn't reindex during the day as it was only affecting a few of our users.
So as a sloppy workaround I combed through the filters and found out it was just one particular option for one custom field. If I didn't look for that specifc option (filter was: [customfield] IN (option1, option2, etc), everything was fine. I ended up "fixing" the problem by pulling up that custom field and simply changing that option in the admin page; specifically I just changed the order and moved it down under the next option. Later that night I reindexed when no one was using JIRA.
Yes, although a screenshot of an error message that is plain text is pointless, it can be useful to see if the UI is doing something unusual.
The most important point is that you need to look at the actual error message - "internal server error" is very generic and tells you nothing. Your logs are important.
