As you know, your i3-3240 HD graphics are not supported.   All you have is the Microsoft generic graphics, which lack features and performance.   There is no processor upgrade path for you.

 

So, you should consult with Dell.  Perhaps they have a list of supported graphic adapters, or can recommend one for their motherboard/bios.

 

In reality, you should upgrade to a new or newer system with an 8th gen processor or later.
