Unless you had a particular reason for updating to the latest Catalyst version, uninstall CCC & Catylst drivers completely, then install the version you got on the CD supplied with the card.

Never update any driver if existing one is working okay. There is no law which says you must always use the latest driver, and updating one just because yours isn't the latest version is not a wise practice.

Driver updates for a Dell laptop should only be downloaded from Dell's website. Is that where you got the update from that's causing the problem?

Yes, drivers from Dell only. That applies to all your laptop's drivers, and it applies any make of laptop - you get drivers ONLY from that particular laptop maker's website.. Those from AMD are for retail motherboards with AMD video chip, or add-on AMD GPU cards, not for integrated GPU on laptops or factory-built computers.

I had a hunch you had downloaded the driver from AMD instead of Dell Support, too bad I didn't ask you earlier. Most likely explains why CCC stopped working.

Usually, Dell only shows the latest available driver so download & install that. Don't worry, it won't be exactly the same version you got from AMD and which has caused the CCC problem. On the Dell support site, enter laptop's "Service Tag" code which should be printed on the laptop's underside, it ensures that you are shown only the drivers that are relevant for your model.

To remove existing Catalyst driver, go here for instructions AMD: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Clea...
