By drives do you mean the nVidia video card drivers? These are the nVidia Drivers you should be downloading.

Did you install this video card yourself after you bought the PC from Dell?

Hello,

After downloading and installing the latest graphics card driver compatible with your graphics card from Nvidia, did you try changing your monitor's resolution in the Nvidia control panel?
