your mobo is probably not compatible with the mobo

check Dell's website to see if there is a bios update or something for the board

Indeed I see nothing that indicates he could use any Quad Core AMD Phenom CPU.
Here are the Processor types that his board is compatible with

AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 dual-core processor
AMD Athlon 64 processor
AMD Sempron™ processor
