Perhaps ?

Have you considered using the Dell Reinstall system.
It is on a hidden partition and will restore the
system to the way it was the day you got it.

Just reboot and click F12 ( please read the manual first!! )
this will almost always correct this sort of behavior.

In my 20 years I have rarely been able to find a cure for
such an " Unusual " error, and I have had many. I long since
gave up trying to find the fix, it is easier to do a clean
install, which the Dell Recovery will do.

I promise it will take more time to correct the error than
to reinstall, reconfigure etc. It is well worth the effort.
