Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
The solitare and other games do not work on the laptop. They used to but now when I turn on the computer an error comes up in the beginning saying some files were lost and the games file doesn't work.
Try and go back to programs and features on the controlpanel and see if the files are present for the games. If not, contact microsoft and they can help get new files for the game. Try the first swolution before because I believe that it will be much easier.

I don't know if you were receiving this error for the same reason I was. I had just purchased a new LCD Flat Panel display and the game absolutely hated the monitor. The resolution I had set for the previous monitor was apparently causing the error that prompted the "/safe" parameter message. Since support dragged their butts in offering a solution, I ended up seeking out help elsewhere online and found this website: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
They deal in solutions for playing a wide variety of games that may not have any support for widescreen.
They offered a most simple solution. The safe meesage appears to come up because the game does not like starting in the resolution you have the game set at.
Their fix is simple. Scrap the "/safe" command that the game is asking you to use.
Go into the game data folder and find the file DATA/ufo-et.ini and then edit the height and width parameters to a lower resolution OR if you are in fact using a widescreen monitor edit the resolution to the default resolution the screen runs best at and then resave the file. Restart the game and the "/safe" message should go away. Worked like a charm for me.
Let me know if this helps
