May it's because of your OS.. What version of Windows are you currently using?

Can you state your hardware setup, OS, graphics driver versions (if known) and game settings? This will be helpful for those helping you troubleshoot

Check here. It covers a load of points I was going to mention:

www.gamebrood.com/2010/06/10/prince-of-persia-the-forgotten-sands-crashes-freezes-auto-save-glitch-resolution-error-launch-problems-stuttering-and-more-fix-and-fixes/

The key ones been:
-) Check your graphics card is a supported one (whether you feel the 'spec' is right or not)
-) Make sure drivers are fully up-to-date for graphics
-) Try some of the fixes/config changes suggested as it's worked for others.
