Display Properties freezing up in windows ME

I have a Dell Dimension L 1000 R computer with win millennium,
256 MB ram Pentium lll, 12 GB hard drive
and 8 GB of free space. I am have problems changing the color scheme. When
I go to the display properties window and click on appearance tab and try to change the color scheme, and when I click apply it freezes
and I have to click ctrl, alt, delete to
continue with-out getting the color change. Any suggestion other then upgrading to win xp or getting a new computer?
Thanks for any help that can be given.

For not much you can go get a 4GB memory stick to copy your stuff out, reload the OS and drivers and start over.
