So, even a brand new project with just a shape layer with the position animated won't preview?
Can we see a screenshot with your whole preview panel showing?
Also, can you try pressing the spacebar to start a preview?

Yes, i made a brand new project and put a minimal animation but it still won't preview anything. Spacebar doesn't start it either.

I have been having this issue as well, and I found a bizarre reason why it was happening in my case.  I recently changed my audio hardware to a pair of bluetooth headphones.  Switching it back to "speakers" eliminated the issue.  Worth a shot to try that, anyway.

Oh my God. This fixed it. I've had this issue intermittently, on several different computers, for years. Thank you!

 

(On a side note, Adobe, why on Earth would something like changing the audio hardware setting fix this.)
