Go to audio settings and try to reduce the maxium amount of sounds to 10-15.

The game is very sound-dependant. Unless you have a proper soundcard you will instanly run to problems if you play with more sounds enabled than your CPU can handle (onboard sound systems use the CPU to produce the audio).

Oh yeah, and posting your Sam2.log file here might help too. It's in the folder where you installed the game. Just Copy/Paste it here.
