Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

No, not the first one.

Your Dell Inspiron 1545 appears to have Intel GMA 4500 video, so the driver you need should be the fourth one, bottom of the list ("Intel Driver, GM45 Video").

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Actually there is only two to choose from. Intel or ATI. The other two showing there are for a TV tuner, they are not video card drivers.

Easiest way to find out which is in it is to go here,

Dell - Drivers and Downloads

and use your service tag number and check the original configuration.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

Corazon was correct. Just enter your Dell service tag and you'll be offered the correct drivers.

Drivers & Downloads

You need the Intel G45 driver, which is the fourth one down.

You haven't said whether you are using Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit. Make sure you choose your version first from the operating system drop-down list.
