Premiere Elements plays in real time whenever possible.
If this isn't happening, it's because of one of two things:
1) Your computer isn't powerful enough to play the video back. What are your computer hardware specs?
2) Your video needs to be rendered. This is indicated by a yellow-orange line along the top of the timeline in Expert view. Pressing Enter on your keyboard will render this video, the line will turn green and your video will play smoothly. IF your computer is powerful enough, of course.
It has two orange lines on the timeline, y tried to render it and the lines remain after the rendering

Yes, that is a relatively low-powered laptop. As you can see on this chart, it earns a workbench rating of about 1600, when I usually recommend at least a 5000-6000 rating for an editing processor.
This is likely compounded by the fact that your project specs are not matching your video specs, as indicated by the yellow-orange line along the top of the timeline. Although pressing Enter (rendering the timeline so that those yellow-orange lines turn green) usually resolves that. I'm not sure why this is not happening for you.
Please refer to ours discussion in progress
which details a workflow for your Nikon D5100 video sources - my most recent post which is number 10.
If necessary, we can also discuss ways, besides Timeline rendering, to improve previewing in the Edit area monitor
a. Right click of Edit area monitor, select Playback Quality, followed by Highest instead of Automatic
b. Edit Menu/Preferences/General and the preference for Timeline Rendering Quality
c. Assuring up to date video card/graphics card driver version
d. Reviewing how you are transferring the files from the computer to Premiere Elements.
We will be watching for your progress. The details included in my post 10 in your other thread should clarify the Timeline Rendering
and previews in real time issues that you may be running into.
Thanks for the follow ups.
Thanks, you´re right, my lap needs a better editing processor.
Please be sure to mark this question as answered, Monica!
