Display animations in Solitare

I have been playing both Solitare and Spider for some time and at the end of the game have had the animated display until very recently when it just stopped. When I look in options the display option is greyed out. How do I get it back. I have not changed it before.

Some of the graphics on the back of cards in Microsoft Windows Solitaire display animated effects. To activate the animation in Solitaire, choose Options from the Game menu and select Timed Game. The animation does not work unless you play a timed game.

If you select the Robot Deck and are playing a timed game, the back of the playing cards will be animated (that is, the lights will blink and the dial will move on the robot picture). Other decks display different animation. The following table describes each deck's behavior:

Deck Action Time Period
---- ------ -----------

Robot Lights blink, dial moves Constant

Castle Bats' wings move Constant

Palm tree Sun sticks tongue out Every 30 seconds

Poker hand Ace pokes out of sleeve Every 15 seconds
