Be sure the iso is not corrupted. I use the same emulator (V 1.9.92) with these settings:

/Graphics - XVideo Driver 1.1.17

/Sound - SDL Sound 1.6.0

/Controller 1 and 2 - Gamepad/Keyboard Input 1.1.0

/CD-ROM - CD-ROM Drive Reader 1.0.0

/BIOS- Simulate PSX BIOS

mayority are default configs and work fine for me.
