Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but Hybrid Crossfire X is for motherboard-intergrated graphics and low-level stand-alone graphics crossfiring, eg:

MB HD 4290 crossfired with HD5450 etc.

The AMD HD6850 you have will not work in Hybrid Crossfire X with your motherboard as the MB and GPU platforms will not allow it, and because frankly there is no need to. The HD 6850's are mid-high range enthusiast GPU's which will ONLY crossfire with HD 6850/6870 models (best to match them with another 6850 for price/performance). Their solo and stand-alone performance is probably 10 times that of what ANY available Hybrid CrossfireX setup could do.

You need to disable the on-board HD4290 on your motherboard (in the bios) and use your HD6850 as your primary graphics source.

*Note: Hybrid CrossfireX and Crossfire are different standards. With your 6850, concentrate on Crossfire and not the other available terms.
