Short answer: No

The D850 modem fits in a PCI slot, but the 3650 only has PCI-e slots.

I tried a another Modem A Conexant. But Windows 10 does not like Modems. I wonder if I went back to Windows 7 it would work. It doesn't matter to me if it is 7 or 10

Did you install a driver for that other Conexant modem?

And why do you even need a dial-up modem?

Yes I istalled a driver, it worked but poorly most sites could not be found. I live out in the country. I have an older puter with Windows Vista I get by , but I don't do much

I presume you have an ISP providing internet service out there in the country. Have you checked with them for recommendations to improve your dial-up connectivity?

If you have an older computer then you have a serial port.  Use an external Serial Modem.

I have a new Inspiron 3650, if

i restart the computer it is in

windows 7 .

i wonder if it will work a little better with a

modem,

windows 10 was not   designed to be used with a

modem.
