Version 42 of Google Chrome has seemingly disabled Silverlight and a few other plugins via NPAPI on a few units I have seen in the past week or so. Services like Netflix that used to use Silverlight have since moved on to other media formats like HTML5 etc. However some websites still run exclusively in Silverlight, and Google Chrome will display a message as if you didn’t have Silverlight installed.   To Enable Silverlight functionality back into the Chrome Browser…

Xbox One Headset Repair

Probably the most obnoxious thing that can happen mid combat in the middle of a match on Xbox live would either your batteries getting low on your controller, or your headset straight up not working. Batteries can be replaced (Or if you’re smart you get a play and charge kit), but the included Xbox One Headphone and Microphone headset is not such a simple remedy. However with a little time and patience you can fix yours (or buy a new…

This is a weird one I came into last month.   Certain Asus machines that run Windows 8 come with Asus AI charger.  This application like many of the crapware that comes with new machines shouldn’t be installed on the machine in the first place but the factory has to feed the public with the marketing ploy that ITS GONNA CHARGE YOUR IOS DEVICES FAST!

ipega bluetooth controller: using it in windows

Getting this one to work was weird, although it works, it is not 100%. It’s a decent controller for $20.  Not anything like an Xbox or Playstation controller quality wise, but it’s functional, and works well with smart phones for games on the app stores, and works fine with NES/SNES emulators and roms on the PC. What’s strange is the device won’t allow you to pair it with Windows normally.   Read on for a little trick on getting it…
