May want to check your display properties and see if your monitor is detected and installed right.
Also, what resolutions does your monitor support? Don't know what model of Dell you bought but many 19 inch LCD monitors only go to 1280x1024 so your display properties would not let you exceed that.

Go to Device Manager (right-click My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manger) and confirm that the Monitor shows to be the Dell 3007WFP. If it shows anything other than that model, try to update the drivers to the 3007WFP.
What is the make/model of your graphics card?

The instructions were..
1. Click Start--> Settings--> Control Panel and then double-click
2. In the Display Properties window, click the Settings tab, and
then click Advanced.
3. Click the Monitor tab, and then click Properties--> Driver-->
4. When the Update Device Driver Wizard dialog box appears, click "NEXT".
5. Choose "Display a list of the known drivers for this device so that
I can choose a specific driver" then click "NEXT".
6. Click "Have Disk" tab.
7. Type in or select from the "Browse" option the location of the driver files
(most likely "C:\Dell\Drivers\R57788") and then click "OK".
8. Select the appropriate model of your monitor then click "NEXT"
9. Click "NEXT" to install driver.
10. Click "FINISH" to complete installation.
And i cut out at step 3 when it asked me to click properties and I wasn't able to (it wasn't lit up...)
Sounds like its not even being detected..strange
EDIT: The screen shots aren't attaching (don't ask, they're probably too big w/o cropping) but hopefully you can in vision what i mean >_>

Go back to Desktop, Properites, Settings, Advanced, Monitor tab. Under Monitor Type (at the top of that screen), what is shown for your monitor? Does it say "Plug and Play Monitor" or something else?
Do you still have the old monitor? If so, shut down the PC, attach the old montor, boot, go to Device Manager and see if there's a monitor listed.
You can try to manually install the Dell monitor. Go to Control Panel, Add Hardware, follow the prompts to install the monitor.
Also, what is the driver date and version for your nvidia cards? Did these cards come in your computer or did you install them later? If later, what make/model is your computer? If your computer is custom built, what make/model is your motherboard?

Also, what is the driver date and version for your nvidia cards? version 62.5, the date isn't listed, but i got the computer around august so fairly new i'd assume.
Did these cards come in your computer or did you install them later? Came with the computer, it's custom.
If later, what make/model is your computer? n/a
If your computer is custom built, what make/model is your motherboard? Not sure, I uploaded my rig's specs to my xfire profile at the very bottom of the page (http://www.xfire.com/profile/cmpgk636/) and when i uploaded it i noticed the computer still seems to think the viewsonic is installed.
Btw, i tried installing it myself through that thing you told me and it didn't work :C I'm rly batting a thousand.
