Just wondering, I noticed that the socket was 775 LGA, however if the chipset or bios don't support the processor then is there a way around this? if it is possible please go into detail about how to do it, thank you for looking.

I don't think there is. Core 2 requires a different chipset with different features than P4. Your only option is to buy a new mobo.

Some older motherboards which originally only supported P4 now also supports the Core 2 line. However, seeing it is an OEM computer, I doubt it would.

You could check Dell's website and see if the motherboard you have supports any other processor.
