The reason for this problem is that backup/restore does not adjust the references from the publishing page objects in the Pages library to their Page Layouts. These URLs are sometimes stored as absolute URLs including the server name. And this server name is the server name of the old server farm which cannot be resolved on the new farm.
In case that you have run into the above problem you have two options:
1.Throw away the database and transfer it correctly using STSADM -o export/import or content deployment
2.Fix the incorrect links manually using the following steps
1.Open the web in SharePoint Designer
2.On the “task panes” window, pick hyperlinks.
3.For the “hyperlink” heading, click the arrow and pick (custom…)
4.In the dialog, ask to show rows where the hyperlink begins with a URLs which are not valid on the current server farm
5.For each of the files, right click and say “Edit hyperlink…” and Replace hyperlink with the hyper link that is valid on the current server farm
