Having some problems enabling Hybrid CrossFireX. My mobo is a Biostar TA785GE 128M which supports Hybrid CrossfireX. The on board GPU is an ATI HD4200 and my discreet GPU is an ATI HD3450.

My device manager is not showing my on board GPU so I am assuming that installing the discreet GPU has disabled the on board GPU!

I have downloaded the latest ATI Catalyst software but it does not give me the option to enable CrossFireX!? I know that is probably something really simple that I am overlooking but cannot figure it out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Found the problem. Downloaded previous driver version 10.10 of the ATI Catalyst Control Center instead of the latest which is 11.8. Also, changed the BIOS settings for the Internal Graphics Controller and CrossFireX was in the Graphics section of the control center on next boot. Done deal......
