Default Mental RAY not loading - Help!

Not sure why but recently mental ray doesn't load into maya, meaning when I go to choose a renderer only maya software and maya hardware show up. Mental ray and maya vector don't show up anymore. Any way to fix this that's known? Lately i've been just opening scenes that have mental ray in it, like my floating city animation, deleting everything in the scene, importing the scene I want to render , then render in mental ray. Lotta work for just a render with MR. Thanks in advance!

Go into the plugin manager and check that MayatoMR.mll is enabled. Do the same for VectorRender.mll. Also, if you want it to start up with Maya, check the Autoload box.
