Dvi port not working but hdmi is

I bought a new graphics card gtx 1050 ti which only has a dvi-d hdmi, and dp ports, and since my monitor only supports a vga port i had to buy an adapter
The problem is the monitor Doesn't recognize the input, but when i connected the pc to the my tv using the hdmi cable its working fine.
Another thing is that the old graphics card also has a dvi-i port (in addition to the vga), and its giving me the same issue.
I've tried getting another adapter and it's still not working.

    Are you using a passive adapter or an active one? The 1050 does not output an analogue signal so an active adapter is required.
