Facebook Messenger

Facebook is officially removing messaging from its flagship mobile app on every platform. This is happening due to the large success of it’s new mobile app replacement for messaging. Facebook has announced this mostly because FB intends to make a better experience out of it’s apps and removing support for the messaging service will make this project easier.

In the coming days if you attempt to send a message you will be redirected to an app download link.

The Destiny beta has officially been released today on the Xbox One, and some users are experiencing a ‘Ready to Start’ bug. The bug essentially says that players are ‘ready to start’ playing the game as soon as you start downloading. Do not try and play. The game will fail to load and you will have to restart your Xbox to resume the download.

“Your download is likely not corrupted, and happily downloading in the background,” Bungie explains. “Please wait to launch Destiny until it is 100% downloaded. To monitor the progress of your Destiny Beta download, please navigate to the Games & Apps tile from the Xbox One home screen”

Cheers and enjoy this amazing game.

Nvlddmkm.sys Blue Screen Of Death

Blue Screen 8.1

Several users are experiencing Nvlddmkm.sys blue screens when they attempt to update their AMD/ATI graphics card drivers on newly installed Windows 8/8.1 systems.

This issue is caused by Windows 8 automatically finding the wrong drivers for your onboard graphics card after the operating system is installed, Windows is for some reason installing Nvidia drivers.

Add or Remove Programs

The solution is an easy one, simply uninstall all Nvidia drivers and programs using Add or Remove programs, and then install the correct driver found on the AMD website.

Cheers and Good Luck

A small update has been released from the Chrome OS team at Google, releasing the above teaser screenshot of the operating system. People have begun to get excited at the idea of a cheaper alternative to the most common operating systems nowadays.

Windows 8.1/9 Start Menu Leak

Win 9 Start Menu

This is the supposed leaked start menu for Windows 8.1 Update / Windows 9.

This is not confirmed but it looks similar to the one that was previously demo’d so until we get confirmation I would assume that it is pretty darn close. It is nice to see Metro converted into the menu that it is being used as. The release of this menu could be as early as the next Windows 8.1 update or take until Windows 9.

Cheers
