AVI is a wrapper, what is inside YOUR wrapper - Exactly what is INSIDE the video you are editing?

Are you working with the tryout version of Premiere Elements 13? I did not understand "on trial atm".
If 13, please troubleshot in the Expert workspace instead of the Quick workspace, so that you can see better what is going on and consequently have more control over the workflow. When you do that, do you see an audio representation on Audio Track 1 when you import your .avi file?
What is the name of the device that is recording the video that you are calling an .avi file and importing it into your Premiere Elements project?
Please download and install the free codec utility named GSpot and tell us the readings for
Video Name, Codec, and Status
Audio Name and Status
Any other properties of the file would be helpful, such as frame size and frame rate (especially whether or not the frame rate was recorded constant or variable). If variable, you will most likely have to convert your video to the H.264.mp4 version with constant frame rate in the free HandBrake program.
Can you import video from another source and format into the project and have video and audio at playback in the project?
Please review, consider, and supply details.
I meant I am on the trial version, didn't know if that had any limitations compared to the brought version.
Also there's no audio file at all...
"Any other properties of the file would be helpful, such as frame size and frame rate (especially whether or not the frame rate was recorded constant or variable)." Frame Rate is 30 FPS and think its constant. Frame size is full screen.
"Can you import video from another source and format into the project and have video and audio at playback in the project?" No idea what that means.. Apart from trying to be a YouTuber, I don't do technical things on the computer.
On afterburners settings I clicked on Enable MJPG Decoder and it worked So it seems like I just was a simple mistake which is easy to do since I don't do computers xD
Thank you both for trying to help ^^

Thanks for the follow up that you have resolved your own issue. I am glad to learn of your success moving forward with your project.
However, then the GSpot audio properties readout becomes interesting since it says that the audio codec is not installed on your computer for the file with which you are have audio problems in Premiere Elements. I am not seeing how "on afterburners settings I clicked on Enable MJPG Decoder" overcame that "codec is not installed" property of the import file. Could you explain...where and what is afterburner settings?
"I am not seeing how "on afterburners settings I clicked on Enable MJPG Decoder" overcame that "codec is not installed" property of the import file."
I'm a gamer and a sixth form student who hasn't done ICT (except from doing stuff with games), so I don't know how its linked to codecs. And I had to look up what codec means when the other person mentioned it xD
Where = I don't know where my Dad downloaded it from, so just googled it. http://gaming.msi.com/features/afterburner
What = Afterburner is this free graphics software that overclocks(?) the system, but it also has screen and video capture abilities.
The settings I use for video recording is:
Format: MJPG compression (No idea what this is)
Container Format: Audio Video Interleave AVI (Puts vids into AVI format)
Quality: 85% (Recording Dragon Age Inquisition so high quality)
Frame size: Full Frame (Probably means recording full screen)
Frame Rate: 30FPS (YouTube vids have this frame rate)
Enabled MJPS Coder (Adobe Elements probably cant read MJPS compressed audio, which is probably why I had no sound until I ticked the box)
2 Audio sources
-WASAPI Playback (Speakers)
-WASAPI Capture (Microphone or extra/enhanced sound)
Mix Multiple Audio Tracked clicked on (No idea what this does but apparently need it if using 2 audio sources)
And that's about all I know about the settings ^^
