    The monitor and the video card both need to be set to digital. What happens when you use a VGA to DVI adapter on the video card? Did you try both Hd3450 outputs?

    the monitor is set on digital ,the hd3450 has only one output and that's DVI . when i plug the dvi from the card into the dvi of the monitor all i get is a no signal message.

    Make sure the computer is sending the proper video signal to the monitor. Pay attention to the vertical refresh rate (usually 59 or 60Hz) and that you don't exceed the max resolution of the monitor...
