Did you remove the drivers of your old card completely first, making sure no leftover files were left?

What card did you have? What 3 cards did you try? Did you totally remove the drivers from the old card before installing the new one and then install the drivers for the new one?

Also, check the sticker on the side of your power supply and post how many amps are available on the 12V rail, dell lists it as a 250W power supply so it might not have enough juice to power the cards you were trying to run. If not you can grab a corsair 400CX off newegg for fairly cheap.

I tried an Nvidia 7600 512mb, a 256mb Nvidia 5500 and a 128mb ATI/Nvidia 7500. those cards would not even boot to power up the monitor!
