CISCO3945-CHASSIS doesn't recognize HWIC-1GE-SFP

Hi experts, I just installed two of the HWIC-1GE-SFP cards in the CISCO3945 router but they are not recognized... I don't see any messages on the console output. I don't see them in the "show diag" command. I don't see new ports in the "show run" either... Is there some command I need to put in to activate them? Here is show version of my router:

HWIC cards must be installed with router turned off.

Reload router.
