Default mental ray missing in render settings


I just got a new computer (windows 7) and just installed maya 2010 64 bit version. I noticed that in the render settings that maya vector and mental ray are not in the RENDER USING window in the settings. Tried contacting maya but no answer yet. Can i reinstall the software to fix this issue?
