I downloaded the d4700a10 bios update from dell and i don't have a dell computer, try the link above and see how you go. i don't know if it supports dx or not but a little further digging around might supply the answer. a10 is the latest upgrade i think, might be worth a try, good luck. let us know here if it works and maybe it can help other. you could also try running a compatability test for win 8 from an online site, look around i think there are a few.
