Computer Specs.

AMD A8 5600K
Asus F55 LX PLUS
G SKILL 8 GB 1600
XFX 6670 Core edition
Corsair CX430 power supply
AOC 2243w

windows 8 64bit


Problem:
installed graphics card set up dual graphics in catalyst control center. Drivers are all up to date. I went to Bios and changed following settings:
IGFX Multi-Monitor ENABLED
Primary Video Device PCIE/PCI
Integrated Graphics Force
UMA Frame Buffer size 1G


I save and reset. Then i plug in dvi to graphics card and monitor. I get no signal just a black screen. Ive tried serveral times. I then take out graphics card plug rgb cable to motherboard and change bios settings to primary video device to igfx in order to start up and get a signal. 

My pc shows that the video card is installed and running fine its just when i plug the dvi in i get no signal. unfortunatly my monitor has a rgb and dvi no hdmi and the graphic card only has dvi and hdmi.

 

Catalyst driver version is Driver Version:                                                                 13.251.0.0

With APU Dual Graphics the monitor will hooked to the Onboard Ports.

In my case I use a Discrete Card that is not Dual Graphic supported so I have to use the ports on the card.

I was under the impression you plugged into the actual card to run dual graphics but thanks for clearing this up

Only id you decide to disable the onboard graphics, then you will need to use the card ports. I had the same issue myself.
