I tried searching a lot for the upgrade but havent found any. Is there a way by which i can upgrade the OS.

Upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 you can see this Microsoft answer. And for Windows 8 you can download Microsoft upgrade assistant to check whether your system is able to upgrade Windows 8 or not.

And Dell community says that they have not the drivers for the Windows 8 yet, while most of the drivers of Windows 7 are working on Windows 8, but some are not with different models.
