Just to make certain, did you set the folder view to Thumbnails?
If not, right click in your picture folder in an empty spot and click View>>Thumbnails.

If so, I have no clue. How many pictures do you have in that folder? Perhaps it's many and it would require your computer a little more time to load the pics? Try making a new picture (make one in paint or another photo editing program) and save it into a New Folder and try to view it as a thumbnail. See what happends.

You need to set it to filmstrip view to get the preview. But this option is only available if you use the correct folder type.

Under properties, customize tab, check under What kind of folder do you want. Set it to Pictures.
