Once i click on display adapters, it just shows the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Doesn't matter, just follow the steps. The PCI Vendor & Device ID will still be listed.

can you post that information. If they are for the same graphics card then download the one that was published latest.
Well when i put in my Service tag they gave me "System Analysis Results" and "All related drivers for your product"
Well I ended up looking through the dell support site:
Drivers & Downloads | Dell United States
Click under video, then download: n-vidia driver, GeForce GT 240M
They said that Nvidia couldn't find any drivers compatible

We could not find any NVIDIA products within your system. Please try again or use the manual search."
Have you tried the Dell website I listed earlier?
Product Selection | Dell United States
I did this and I got three things
R232275.exe
R293649.exe
R248560.exe

have any ideas what these are?
R232275 are motherboard chipset drivers. R293649 is a BIOS update. R248560 are your onboard sound drivers. What did you do - download the top few items in the list? None of these are graphics (video) drivers.

The drivers should be harmless. The BIOS update has a very small, but not zero, chance that it will render the laptop unbootable.

At:

Drivers & Downloads | Dell United States

I see 9 "video" drivers for Win7 X64. There are NVidia and AMD drivers, so you'd have to know which graphics adapter (aka video card) is in your system. If you look up the device hardware ID for the adapter in Device Manager, you can try plugging that into a web search engine. For example: if I search on:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0638&CC_0300

I find that I have a Quadro FX 1800, which is correct.

Best of luck.
