1. the card is defect
2. windows is damaged to a point you can't simply repair it
(under the assumption, that you did not change any hardware / modified the BIOS)
can you test you graphics card in another PC ?!

start-->setting-->control panel-->user accounts
did the PC come with windows preinstalled?
and is it still that preinstalled windows ?
if so it is possible, that dell integrated a nvidia driver into the operating system

Check out DriverCleaner.net, newest version low cost.
Older versions of DriverCleaner can be found on net for free.
Any driver cleaner software you use must be used in Safe Mode.
Use Reg Cleaner software to remove traces of old nv junk.
Important: USE [Windows Install Cleanup], a free app from MS. After removing the old nv stuff, check to see if something nv is still there.
