Installed a trial version of premiere elements 2018. Tried a test to drop a video on the timeline but it is not displayed in a sort of preview box. Also the fullscreen mode gives no reaction. Just a big black screen.

HP 14" laptop

Core I5 7200

8gb RAM

Geforce 940MX

150Gb free diskspace

Not meeting system requirements?

Without more information, this is a guess. 

With video editing minimum specifications are not always enough.   A lot of video formats require some significant computer horsepower.

What is the size, type and source of the video clip?

Luc,

The issue may not be your computer.  Premiere Elements is intended to edit video from cameras.  It doesn't even try to edit video from programs like that.  There are too many "codec" variables to account for. 

For slideshow videos, try putting the JPEGs directly into Premiere Elements just like you do for a video clip.  Put them on the timeline and add music.  It works very well and does not need much CPU power to make work.

Luc,

There is a system of ranking CPUs.  Yours gets 3315.    PassMark CPU Benchmarks - High Mid Range CPUs

To have a pleasing and satisfactory video editing experience with HD video, you need more CPU power, more RAM and probably a faster HDD. 

Rankings above above 7,000 to 9,000 make for good video editing.  PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End

There may be a workaround.  The free Handbrake program might work to downscale your HD video to something that might work.

Ok Bill, but why can't I see it just on the timeline and not in a preview/monitor screen just as with all kinds of other programs?

Viewing and editing are two different things.  Video editing software has to make a system of previews that can take the "mark ups" you create in the process.  It has to "render" those previews in real time.  The "rendering" engine is picky about what it is asked to work with and can't work with everything.  Adobe intends for Premiere Elements to work with mainstream consumer grade cameras and camcorders.  Everything else can cause problems.
