Green Scramble Screen of Suicide Anyone?

For some odd reason:
Every few recordings, after Ive finished the session, and play back the video, it only plays a green snow screen of Suicide. The video is trashed, not able to play, asta la vista, never to be watched again. Kind of like the picture I attached below, only without the menu button saying “Restart or Reset System” I’ve made new project files, have plenty of HDD space, and my laptop hasn’t frozen. What’s the Dealio?

*Note: The picture below is not what actually shows, it is for exampling purposes only.

Is it possible you set the recording codec/format to mpeg4?
