Standar VGA graphics card help

I recently installed Windows 7 and the resolution is stuck at 640 times 480. I don't know how to find/update my video driver. Please help.

I tried the Device manager method and it says it's up to date.

Just go to Dell's support page and click support & drivers then insert your service tag in the appropriate search field.

Dell will then offer all the drivers for your system.

Download them and save them in a location of your choice then install them as you need them.

All I need is the video one.

Do I just download the urgent/reccomended ones?

Entering the service tag did not bring up any result for a graphic card , there are 13 versions of graphic card for that model the only thing I can now suggest is 1. open the case and look at the graphic card noting the model /manf and dl the appropriate driver 2. dl each driver until one works !
