You must to contact DELL and ask them which processors are compatible with THEIR BIOS.

An upgrade processor must be socket, BIOS, and chipset compatible.

Personally, upgrading a 1st gen processor will not do you much good in today's world. It would be far better for you to upgrade to a new(er) system, especially if Windows 10 is your goal.
