If you have a spare expansion slot (AGP) then yes you can. You may have to disable the on-board video in the BIOS.

580s real time clock failure (5 beeps at start up)

If the time is always changed when you boot up. I would change the battery.
You can find the battery on the Motherboard. The battery looks like a silver colored quarter.
That should do it unless the rest of the circuit is bad.
Hope this helps.

Make sure your monitor settings were not changed. you can also go into the properties of the video card and change the screen resolution. If you are still not having any luck you may need to reinstall the video driver.

Dell Inspiron video card

You should call DELL. I think the display card is part of the mother board on your computer. In this case, you cannot change it. In some models you can add some memory to the display card, but this may not make the card faster. Higher amounts of memory allows for more resolution and colours.
