You haven't given us too much to go on to help you troubleshoot, so I'll guess.

Are you trying to play the comp by hitting the spacebar? AE isn't built for real-time playback; everything must be rendered first.

Try a RAM preview instead by hitting 0 on the numeric keypad.

If you're new to After Effects, I'd recommend the following link, in which Adobe's Todd Kopriva pulls together some important introductory materials:

I especially recommend the Video Copilot "Basic Training" series that Todd links to.

(If I guessed wrong, some more information about your system, your footage, and how you're previewing it would help us help you.)
