    Don't use any higher a resolution than you have to. 800 X 600 and 1024 X 768 does fine for most people, depending on the monitor size.

    Don't use any higher than 16-bit high color. 32-bit true color is not needed for most people and it puts more strain on the display adapter.

    Download and reinstall the drivers(preferably any updated ones) for your display adapter.

    Download and install the Microsoft DirectX 9.0b multimedia drivers.

    Add another 128 MB of RAM. Windows ME runs best on at least 256 MB.
