    Are the sub-sites and root-site using same MasterPage? Have you ever hide Site Actions by editing MasterPage or adding any CSS? Oct 8, 2012 at 12:58

It sounds as though you have either modified your master page to hide the site actions, or possibly ribbon, or you provided custom css that is hiding the site actions button.

First, is the ribbon hidden on the site collection home page or just the site actions button?

Second, load your site in Firefox if you can, and using the Firebug plugin, search for the ribbon or site actions container. If neither are found then check out your custom master page. If you can find the proper elements then check to see what css was added that is accidently hiding the element.
