What are the specifics of your source media?
(file type, codec etc.)
Is this a new problem?
Has it ever worked with this media on this system?
Hello Joe Bloe Premiere,
I tried it with several files (which can be played on the PC without problem), so I think it is not connected with the type of file.
The problem is new, as I just started to work with Premiere. I have some experience with simpler video editors, so this might be an "unexperienced" problem. But I think I should be able to start a preview as soon as I have placed the media in the timeline. I can render a video out of Premiere with no problem.

What is your device driver version?
Right click in any open area of the Windows desktop

I tried it with several files
What are the specs of those files? (It maters.)
H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (avc1)
MPEG 1/2 Video (pgv)
MPEG-4 Video (XVID)
Windows Media Video VC1 (WVC1)
Motion JPEG Video (MJPG)
...is the video format specific enough?
Those are all distribution codecs, apart from AVC. Suitable for distribution and playing with various players. They are not suitable for editing with PR. You have to convert them first to an editable format before importing. Use Google to find a converter.
I worked with some of those and had no problem to create new edited videos. Everything works just fine besides the preview issue.
It doesn't work also with self created video files such as the ones out of my DSLR or from a video cam, just tried a video from an AR.Drone:
Codec: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part10) (avc1)
It doesn't work. I don't believe it is a codec related problem.
