Then I guess a Repair Install should work.
Also, many anti virus programs have the ability to block autorun.inf (autoplay file).
Try uninstalling your anti virus and see if that works.

Otherwise, Repair Install should fix the issue. If nothing works, then a Clean Install is the only way.

Fingers Crossed!

Hi NasNastyNas,

Try this simple fix that had worked for many.

Shut down - real shut down and not Sleep - your laptop. Remove the AC power adaptor. Remove the battery pack. Your laptop is simply powerless now.

Press the power button for a few seconds. That should simply remove any residual charge in the laptop.

To be doubly sure, leave the lappy powerless for a few minutes.

Now reverse the process. Plug-in your battery pack. Plug in your AC adapter and power it.

Boot your lappy and then plug-in your pendrive.

Is it recognised?

Hey Nas I think you should go with what Dinesh said and reinstall and if you haven't got any media you have got the option of a factory default install.

Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings | Dell

If that doesn't work then maybe the original install was corrupted from the start. In that case yu might need to go to a clean install from a USB ISO stick

Sorry to say that your screenshots do not convey any meaningful information and difficult to read.

Please use the Windows snipping tool, to capture the relevant portions and upload.

Now plug-in only one pendrive.( No other USB devices)

Does it appear in the Device Manager under Disk drives?

Does it appear in (My)Computer?

Does it appear in Windows Disk Management?

Please post the screenshots plus any other screenshot which you think may convey some information.

( The above screenshots were taken with the snipping tool.)
