Any monitor and graphics adaptor made this century is capable of better than 640x480 resolution. bizzyb0t wrote out instructions for you to find the description of your graphics adaptor/card but you haven't reponded.
The Dell suport site shows you could have a range of graphics adaptors in that model - from onboard video to a PCI-X card. Unless you're booting in safe mode - in which case the screen will say 'safe mode' in each corner - it is almost certainly a graphics driver problem. Have you called Dell?
