The only BIOS upgrade that is likely to work is one provided by Dell. Check their website. If there's no new BIOS - and there probably isn't - I don't know of any way that won't possibly brick your motherboard.

Your current BIOS may support a new processor (if you haven't checked). And there's probably no need for a new BIOS to upgrade memory.
