My computer should meet the specs necessary and then some.
Should it? We can't know. You have not provided any exact system and version info, no details about your project, your pref settings for MP rendering and cache and what have you. Sorry, but these kinds of posts are useless. Just saying that something doesn't work is simply not enough.
Valid point. Sorry
I have the asus Republic of Gamers G750JS-TS71
It has an Intel quad core i7-4700HQ 2.4 GHz
32 GB of ram
Hybrid Hard Drive Capacity of 750GB with 8 GB of SSD
Nvidia Geforce GTX 870M graphics card
64-bit operating system
Is their anything else that might help?
Are you using RAM Preview or pressing the space bar?
The button i hit says it is RAM Preview and it is the same one that the rest of my class uses so I'm pretty sure.
I have this problem too, but I find it remedies that if you go into Project Settings under the File menu and change the Working Space to HDTV (Rec. 709), then with your comp active go to the View menu, Simulate Output - HDTV (Rec. 709).
Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately it did not fix. my computer still says it is not running in realtime.
Make sure MP is off, disk cache is on and you have plenty of free space. Try caching in background Cmnd/Ctrl + Enter and see if that helps. Last suggestion, make sure AE is completely up to date.
AE is up to date. Ctrl + Enter did not fix it. What is this MP thing?

Can we see a screenshot of your memory and multiprocessing settings, please?
Also, what happens if you close every other program (such as Chrome) before you start working in AE?
So I talked to another one of my teachers and he recommended that i should look into the driver on my graphics card.
So if it helps my Geforce GTX 870m graphics card is presently running on driver version 347.25.
I have yet to find out if this is the root cause of my problems or not but i figured i would let it be known anyways.
The GPU doesn't do much for AE, but in this case, it wouldn't hurt to look into updating it since we may be dealing with a redraw issue. I maintain my suggestion of trying it after you reboot your machine and before you load any other software (especially Chrome).
