No, the OP has very low contrast - in fact zero contrast!
I presume you are having difficulty because you cannot see anything when
you go into ControlPanel>Display>Appearance>Advanced again. Two
possibles I can think of:
1. Drag the cursor over the bits you are trying to see: highlighted text
often shows up differently. However, white on white might highlight as
black on black or similar, so if that does not work,
2. Try using one of the other colour schemes - does not really matter
which one, nor that you cannot see what you are getting.
Assuming you have "classic" start menu, the keyboard sequence (even if
you cannot see it) is: Start (i. e. Windows key), C for Control Panel,
enter, D D for display (the first D is for date and time), enter. Or,
right click on an empty part of desktop, then r for Properties (!) will
get you to the same place.
Once you have Display Properties up, Shift-tab, then right, right, right
to get to the Appearance tab, Alt-C for Color Scheme, then up then
enter. This should select some colour scheme with buttons with text a
