I have searched and searched on how to get my APU and GPU to work as dual graphics. The user on the youtube video I watched had a different Bios than mine, so no help. If anyone has done it before and can either message me detailed instructions, or has skype so I can show you what I'm doing, it would be much appreciated. Thank you for any and all help.
My build:
CPU: AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819113280
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 6670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814121645
MOBO: ASUS F2A55-M LK PLUS FM2 AMD A55 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131885

I wish it came with one. And clearly I have exhausted all my options or I wouldn't resort to posting on multiple forums looking for help.

Look up the motherboard model, the manufacturer's website will have a PDF version of the manual.

EDIT: Well, decided to do this for you and the manual doesn't say anything about Dual Graphics.

Your board does not support Hybrid CX

Thanks man, I don't know why it didn't state that on any other site. Clearly Asus was not thinking when they made a mobo to support an APU and a video card, but just not both at the same time, defeats the entire purpose.

It will run both at the same time your manual tells you how to set it up in the Bios.... I read it in there some where but it doesn't support them in hybrid cx.

You mean as in running the CPU and GPU at the same time? Not as in running the GPU and the GPU in the APU at the same time correct?

Can you link where you found the manual? and I just found this, http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/F2A55M ... ifications and it says it supports dual graphics, but on here, http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-f2a ... dvi-d-matx it supposedly is not. I have no idea what to do.

I would honestly ask how this works, because it may just be a driver thing.

That's what I've been doing but no one has answers. I've researched and tried every driver I could find.

Well, if there's no driver option and BIOS doesn't say anything, then we could say ASUS put that in error and the board really doesn't support it.

If anyone here has skype or anything and has an FM2 board I could show you what I'm doing on my phone if your able to do a walk through with me. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone for your comments, finally figured it out, http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/suppor ... p?S_ID=549 had to set my surround view to enabled and leave the onboard graphics on auto instead of force. Thank you guys.
