View Full Version : GamerOSD crashes other applications

12-25-2010, 10:48 AM
I've just bought an ASUS GTX460 and after the installation of drivers and utilities (GamerOSD) a lot of applications just started to crash ( as example: yahoo messenger, StarCraft etc..). After a little bit of investigation I uninstalled the GamerOSD tool and the other applications started to work.

What is wrong with GamerOSD ? I took the last version from Asus website but the scenario is the same. What is the solution for this issue ?

Other info:
OS: Win7-x64, Motherboard Asus P6X

OSD is just a crappy software which is completly useless. Just uninstall it and everything will be fine.

I am unfamiliar with GamerOSD. This means whoever made GamerOSD should have performed better tests before just releasing flawed software. Unless its well known to everyone dont even install it because its likely not needed. With most video cards these days just installing the latest drivers will make it work and make it work well. If you really want to get the extra 3-10 frames per second with overclocking then look for the other software to do that. I suggest going to the nvidia website to get current drivers and to also get the nvidia system tools with esa support (if you wish to overclock.)

People are most likely to install only the software from Nvidia or AMD instead of the driver from the seller card ( ASUS, MSI, EVGA etc. ) That's why we rarely heard of software like OSD. But well, that remind me of the old ROG 8600 that was coming with a overclocking controller that was looking like a fan controller and that was a real joke how ****ty it was working. The idea was good but there was some major bug in it.
