Plug into the first PCI-E not the second. Clear your CMOS. Are you using 2 crossfire link?

Curious that HD 5970 to HD6970 is barely an upgrade...
HD 5970 is still faster.

This had happened to me 2 days ago. There wasn't any signal coming out both of the GPUs. I had to unplug and re-seat both GPUs or Swap them. Then I got it working.

By blank screen, you meant you can't even see your BIOS boot? Any POST?
