Please give us some information to go on...
What Dell? Since this is in the Vista forum, I assume it's an older model? Was it working previously with a different monitor?
What model of Samsung monitor?
What do you mean by analog? If you're using a VGA connection to the monitor, it is analog. To be digital you'd need to be using DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort.
What do you mean by from the 80s? If you mean it's low resolution, what screen resolution is it set to?

What do you mean when you say you just set it up? Did you do a new install? It sounds as though you need to install the graphics driver.
Go to Device Manager. Are there any yellow or red symbols?
Go to the website of the manufacturer of your display adapter. Download the correct driver for your card and install it.

If you're referring to the monitor saying Analog Input, that just means it's the VGA input not the HDMI input. Analog doesn't look any different on screen to Digital.
As Allan says, if you're getting only a low resolution on the screen, the correct video driver may not be installed. You should be able to have the system scanned and the correct driver(s) installed here:
That is assuming the system is using the onboard video - if it has a video card fitted (non-factory), it will need to be identified and the appropriate driver installed, as Allan says.
An indication of whether the lack of suitable video driver is causing the issue, is whether the correct resolution for the monitor, 1920 x 1080, can be set.
