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.

You should see the discrete 6670 and onboard grpahics under your Device Mgr. 

In the Vision Control panel you should be able to enable Dual Graphics there. Keeping your monitor hooked up via the onboard graphics.

If the card doesn't show then the card doesn't have power or is bad.

It really shouldn't be anymore difficult than that.

It does show up on the device manager. I have my monitor hooked up with an HDMI out of my video card. In the vision center it still does not show dual graphics.

Not under any of the tabs. I took a screen shot but apparently you cant upload images.

There is a trick to it I have seen others put screen images, I haven't figured that out. 

Maybe more info on your system, see the sticky on information about your system.

Just got notified about my mobo by another forum, supposedly it cannot do the hybrid crossfire, http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-f2a55-m-lk-a55-fch-fm2-ddr3-sata-ii-3gb-s-raid-pcie-20-%28x16%29-d-sub-dvi-d-matx clearly no one at Asus was thinking when they made this. Defeats the purpose of having an APU socket and graphics card slot.

Can you return the 6670 and get 7850. It is better than Dual graphics.

The other is to get a newer motherboard.

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.
