Honestly I'd call Dell directly on this one. What did they say?

Are you sure they were purchased with the ERA/O(rac). On the 1750 it is not a built it option. To configure it during post it will start the controller and you'll need to press ctrl+d, this will bring you to the ERA options.

The port is built in but the ERA card has to be installed. Here's the part#(s) if you want to install them 6W963 and R0229 will also work. You can pick them up on ebay for $50.

If jamietoner brought up the correct point, you should accept his answer instead of close the question and refund.
