You can't. It's a dell, and they lock up their motherboards so that some stupid user (by no means you) won't go screwing with the BIOS settings and blow up their PC and expect a replacement under the warranty.
What you need to do to overclock that is at least a motherboard upgrade. And when/if you do that, be sure not to get an mATX if you have an ATX case, and not to get an ATX board with an mATX case. Chances are you need mATX, but you need to check first. mATX is usually denoted by 4 expansion slots (including PCI, AGP, PCIe, etc.) or less.
Another option is to do a little software overclocking, with Clockgen or the like, but these are very tough to work with and your computer crashes very quickly (aka becomes unstable). I've tried this on my HP and decided it was worth it to leave it at stock.
