    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin? Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - reading http://wordpress.org/support/topic/279132?

    That drag and drop function is Javascript so make sure that you have Javascript enabled. Also clear your browser cache.

    If you have the WP Events Calendar plug in - get rid of it, it messes up widget drag & drop plus alot of other problems.
