Game Freezes when entering UFO attack screen

I'm on an older HP Pavilion Laptop with an...
ATI Mobility Radeon 9000/9100 128mb IGP series AGP
Intel Pentium IV 3GHz Dual Core
SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
Windows XP SP3 with DirectDraw Disabled in order to run X-COM.
I'm not using compatibility mode for either game, does it have any affect whatsoever?.

I should add that using alt-tab, alt+F4 or ctrl+alt+del does nothing. The computer locks up and I need to force a shutdown by holding down the power button.
Edit: Problem solved. After looking at this topic I found the problem. I needed to change "MIDI music playback" from "SoundMax Wavetable Synth" to "Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth" and I set it to "Use only default devices". Now I can use "ldr_XCOM1.exe" and "ldr_XCOM2.exe" to launch X-COM1 and 2 and not need to manually disable "DirectDraw". I also don't need to use "Turbo" anymore!!. I can raise or lower the music too.
